These storms havea long history of inflicting disaster on coastal cities and ecosystems, with high winds, torrential rains, and storm surges. Hurricanes have also been linked to global warming, although the exact correlation is not fully understood. For this assignment, you will track the frequency and strength of hurricanes since 1980, and compare this data with average surface and ocean temperatures.Hurricane DataA good source of hurricane data is the Unisys Weather hurricane website, located at .
