NSF Announces "Rapid Response" Awards to Learn the Lessons of Katrina

Back to article | Note about images

Katrina enters the Gulf of Mexico.

Hurricane Katrina enters the Gulf of Mexico on Aug. 27, 2005. A hurricane builds up strength as it passes over warm water. In this image, which is based on data taken by the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite, the ocean is colored according to its 3-day average surface temperature: the warmer it is, the redder it is.
