Hurricane Isabel: Under the Hood (PR and AMSU only)
Released on September 8, 2004
This visualization is an inset from animation 2996. It shows how the distribution of Hurricane Isabel's rainfall (circular sturctures below) and heat inside the storm (oblong structures above) fluctuated dramatically as the storm changed intensities. The warm core of the hurricane was the engine that drove the storm, allowing it to draw up energy from the ocean, gathering strength and size.
