Devise a logical argument for why it is beneficial to use names for hurricanes over latitude- longitude identification methods. I don 't understand how to do this. Please, help me.
Just to get you started... Hurricanes spin in different directions based on if they form above or below the equator.
Hurricanes move so lat & long will be constantly changing.
The only valid argument would be it is easier to remember a name rather than a latitude - longitude coordinate.
1) Easier to remember a name 2) A name can be unique, whereas more than one hurricane can form at the same lat/ long from year to year. 3) Hurricanes move, so naming hurricanes after their lat/ long makes no sense at all.
