Hurricane Isabel: Under the Hood (background only)

This visualization shows NOAA/GOES infrared (IR) data of Hurricane Isabel as it makes its way across the Atlantic towards landfall. The track of Isabel is shown using a color code to indicate the storm's category: green=tropical depression, yellow=tropical storm, red=category 1, light red=category 2, purple=category 3, light purple=category4, white=category 5. This visualization is the background for animation ID 2996.
