Tropical storms are also known as their more popular names of typhoons, hurricanes and cyclones. In this class on Natural Hazards, students will examine the formation of tropical storms. They will identify where and why they occur, this will involve examining location and linking towards processes within weather patterns and forces of a global scale. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 who want to develop a better understanding of geography hazards.
