Summary form only given, as follows. From a fluid dynamics viewpoint, hurricanes are a fascinating and intricate system. But, as we have found out on several occasions over the past couple of years, they pack a wallop, especially for vulnerable communities that have neglected to take proper precautions. As a result, they are amongst the most studied of atmospheric phenomena, and a sophisticated array of technology is deployed to support their analysis and forecasting. the author will provide an overview of what gets them going, how they move, the damage that they can cause, whether they are undergoing climatic changes, and the approaches to observing and forecasting them.
