1997 Atlantic Tropical Storms: Views from the NOAA SatelliteEntry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00500
Abstract: 1997 Atlantic Tropical Storms is a technical report available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The geographic coverage is the North Atlantic tropical storm basin. Land areas include particularly the Caribbean islands and the eastern and southeastern United States. This report, produced by NCDC in cooperation with the Tropical Prediction Center (TPC), is a preliminary summary of the ... 1997 Atlantic Hurricane season. It provides a synopsis of each named tropical storm using textual information based on the TPC Preliminary Hurricane Reports authored by Lawrence, et al, and remotely sensed and in-situ data received at the NCDC. Satellite imagery for each storm were taken by the eastern Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-8). Additional meteorological data for Hurricane Danny, the most destructive hurricane affecting the U.S. mainland, includes a NEXRAD Doppler Radar derived storm total precipitation map, a table of stations reporting five inches or more rainfall from the storm, and a map of total precipitation created from an extensive collection of cooperative and National Weather Service stations. The statistics on deaths and damages were obtained from the TPC's Preliminary Hurricane Reports and are subject to revision.
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.

Quality Sound recordings and playback tests were all assessed in 2006. Vocalisations were recorded with the best signal-to-noise ratio, at a 44-kHz frequency sample, 16 bits, wav format.
The same equipment has been used for all recordings (Sennheiser shotgun microphones & Marantz digital recorders; CRT hydrophone).
Access Constraints Limited access to the recordings. Please contact the main investigator.
