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 April 6-7, 2024 at the University of South Alabama's main campus (Mobile, AL), in the Student Center Ballroom. Guests also may have the opportunity to view the innovative Coastal Weather Research Center and advanced meteorological equipment used by the meteorology students and faculty on campus.

Thanks to the USA Student Government Association and the Coastal Weather Research Center, there is no charge for attendees affiliated with the University of South Alabama. There is a nominal $25 registration charge for non-USA attendees to help offset the continued rising costs required to host the conference.
