On Saturday, December 8, HAS Professors Xubin Zeng and Thomas Galarneau made the front page news of the Arizona Daily Star with the leading story, Two UA researchers correctly predicted active Atlantic hurricane season.

In a September HAS news article, Hurricane Season 2017: It Isn't Over Yet, the two HAS faculty members accurately predicted an abnormally busy and intense Atlantic hurricane season, while other forecasting centers predicted otherwise.

Along with former graduate student Kyle Davis and former professor Elizabeth Ritchie, they developed their forecasting model in 2015. Read more about how they used their model to predict a "hyperactive year" in the Atlantic here.
