Wind Vectors for Hurricane Erin (WMS)

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.
