Record-breaking high temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean combined with El Niño spell uncertainty for the Atlantic hurricane season. El Niño, known to reduce hurricane activity in the Atlantic basin, developed early this summer.
Florida State University researchers have analyzed the carbon exported from surface waters of the California Current Ecosystem — the first-ever study to quantify the total carbon sequestration for a region of the ocean.
From the atmospheric disturbances that generate them to the insurance market that helps in their aftermath, there is much to understand about hurricanes. Florida State University faculty are world leaders in the study of hurricanes, the effects of these destructive storms and solutions for mitigating their impacts.

Meteorologists predict current La Niña conditions will persist this year through a third consecutive winter, a situation that usually brings a more active late hurricane season, followed by a dry and warm fall and winter across Florida.
The United Nations marks June 8 as World Oceans Day, an opportunity to celebrate the ocean and how it supports life on Earth.
FSU faculty members are available to answer media questions and provide perspective for news stories throughout the 2022 hurricane season, which officially runs from June through November.
Florida State University researchers have received nearly $9 million from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine’s Gulf Research Program to improve predictions of water currents in the Gulf of Mexico...
Researchers from Florida State University's Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies took home a third-place finish and $10,000 prize in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Forecasting Floats in Turbulence Challenge, which encouraged development of new models predicting the movement of free-floating objects on the ocean's surface.
