University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography

DSS principal Eric Cote worked with the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography to help develop, an unprecedented website that has been heralded as the world’s most advanced hurricane science websites.

The site was developed through a grant from the National Science Foundation under the direction of an esteemed panel of scientific advisors that included the world’s most renowned hurricane experts. The new website is expected to become the premiere classroom tool for thousands of secondary school teachers and undergraduate college professors teaching hurricane science to millions of students. The new website was launched in October 2010 in partnership with the Louisiana State Museum’s (LSM) Hurricane Katrina Exhibit, which opened at the LSM facility in New Orleans.
