The Alabama Gulf Coast is the setting for one of the nation's newest meteorology curriculums. Although the area
is well known for its azaleas, abundant sunshine, and outdoor recreation, it also has a variety of severe weather
phenomena including thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, and waterspouts; an offering of nature that should excite
any student of meteorology.
