Q&A with NASA Hurricane Expert

NASA's Hurricane expert Dr. Jeff Halverson explains how NASA's GRIP mission is keeping a close eye on Hurricane Earl and other storms over the Atlantic. Scientists use data collected from NASA's DC-8, Global Hawk and WB-57 aircraft to study the Genesis and Rapid Intensification Process that hurricanes undergo as they become major storms.
