Recipe of a Hurricane - Spin Around Clouds and Isosurfaces

This visualization was created in support of the 'Recipe for a Hurricane' live shot campaign. This is a visualization of hurricane Erin on September 10, 2001. This version of the visualization is a slow spin around the GOES and TRMM/VIRS based cloud tops (extruded), the TRMM/PR based rain isosurface, and the CAMEX-4/dropsonde-based heat isosurface.
