The Birth and Death of Irene as Seen From Space

Posted on Posted in Physical Geography, Remote Sensing

NOAA just released a fascinating video showing the birth and death of hurricane Irene as seen from space.  The video was created from imagery captured by the GOES-13 weather satellite.  This lovely new satellite captures a view every 30 minutes and has been running for a little over a year (more to be found about this satellite at the link).
