Welcome to the Southeastern Coastal & Atmospheric Processes Symposium (SeCAPS) web site
A symposium presented by:
The University of South Alabama Chapter of the American Meteorological Society
The University of South Alabama Department of Earth Sciences
The USA Coastal Weather Research Center
What is SeCAPS?
The Southeastern Coastal and Atmospheric Processes Symposium is held annually during the spring semester. Topics include tropical and coastal meteorology, hurricane and severe weather safety and awareness, coastal processes, the role the media and governmental departments take in public notification of impending natural disasters, and current research being conducted. The relaxed nature of SeCAPS fosters interaction between students and earth science professionals in industry, government, broadcast media, and academia.
The symposium will be held on the University of South Alabama's main campus (Mobile, AL), in the main lecture hall in Shelby Hall. This will allow guests the unique opportunity to view the innovative Coastal Weather Research Center and advanced meteorological equipment used by the meteorology students and faculty on campus.
There is no longer any charge to attend SeCAPS (Special thanks to the Coastal Weather Research Center and the Student Government Association of the University of South Alabama). However, everyone will have to register separately and you can do so when registration is open.
