QUIKSCAT Imagery of Hurricane Katrina
Entry ID: NASA_QUIKSCAT_KATRINA

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: QUIKSCAT imagery of Hurricane Katrina is available from the NASA Jet
Propulsion Laboratory. QUIKSCAT's scatterometer sends pulses of microwave
energy through the atmosphere to the ocean surface, and measures the energy
that bounces back from the wind-roughened surface. The energy of the microwave
pulses changes depending on wind speed and direction, giving scientists a way
to monitor wind around the world.
