Video: The 2008 Hurricane Season in Four MinutesThursday, 22 October 2009
Here is a fantastic video produced by NOAA Environmental Visualization Laboratory. It’s a compilation of all the satellite images taken by the GOES satellite during the 2008 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
From the website: The GOES satellite is North America's first line of defence in identifying and tracking any tropical cyclonic activity. Every 15 minutes the GOES satellite acquires a new image of the Northern Hemisphere. Using data from the infrared water vapour channel, it is possible to see the storms, as well as the high pressure areas that affect their movement and intensity.
Sadly, the video can’t be embedded into other sites so you will need to click through to actually watch it.
Thanks for Andrew for the tip!
