Hurricane Research & Mentoring

September 3, 2014

What does mentoring students have to do with hurricane research or any research? We spoke with the following researchers involved with tropical cyclones to find out:
* Chris Davis, James Done, and Greg Holland from the National Center for Atmospheric Research,
* Kerry Emanuel from MIT, and
* Shirley Murillo with NOAA's National Hurricane Center.
From their stories of becoming and being a scientist, we found enduring links between their work and mentoring in their own lives as well as in the lives of those they have mentored.
Learn more about mentoring students of all ages and explore research, educational resources, videos, and historical reflections on hurricanes from NCAR's Archives in September's UCARConnect feature.
