NRL Tropical Cyclone Web Page

Silverstein here.  I know you haven’t heard from me in a while, but I’ve been busy.  First, I went to help with the fires we had in Big Sur.  I’m not a fireman, but figured that I’d lend assistance where I could.  Linda Kipling and I helped several families who had to evacuate.  Days later, we got the word that their homes had been destroyed.  A sad situation, I tell you.

And then, last week, the hurricane season started to really ramp up, with Gustav setting its sights on New Orleans.  Hurricane Hanna is now getting our attention.  By the way, if you want to see satellite pictures of ANY hurricane or typhoon on the planet, consider checking out the web site at the Naval Research Laboratory here in Monterey.  Click here: NRL Tropical Cyclone Web Page.
  On the left side of the page, you’ll notice all of the different ocean basins of the world: Atlantic, East Pacific, West Pacific, and so on.  Below each region, you’ll see active storms.  For example, click on Hanna and you will get not only the latest visible or infrared image of the hurricane, but also a plot of its track.  The Tropical Cyclone Page development team at NRL does a fantastic job putting all of this together for you.  

Tag, in a feeble attempt to keep his web site appealing, has a link on his home page to the latest Atlantic hurricane of interest.

That’s enough for now.  Will report back later.
