This visualization shows wind vectors for Hurricane Erin on September 10, 2001. Wind direction and speed are represented by the direction and speed of moving arrows, respectively. This visualization represents a single measurement taken by the SeaWinds instrument on the QuikSCAT satellite, taken at 14:27:00 UTC on September 10, 2001. The WMS version of this visualization which is available through the SVS Image Server presents this visualization with a different timestamp for each frame in order to more easily present the images as a moving series of images. It should be noted that each frame really has a time stamp of 2001-09-10 14:27:00 UTC.
