For much of the last year, concerns that human activities were causing more frequent and more intense hurricanes received considerable attention. Dr. William Gray, one of the world?s most famous hurricane experts, reviewed these claims and discuss how the 2006 hurricane season affects these conclusions.  His slideshow presentation can be found here: Gray – Hurricanes and Climate Change slides

More than two decades ago, as professor of atmospheric science and head of the Tropical Meteorology Project at Colorado State University, Dr. William Gray pioneered the science of hurricane forecasting. Each December, six months before the start of hurricane season, Gray and his team issue a long-range prediction of the number of major tropical storms and hurricanes that will arise in the Atlantic Ocean basin. He specializes in the global aspects of tropical cyclones; observational and theoretical aspects of tropical meteorological research and the investigation of meso-scale tropical weather phenomena.
