Title: Hurricanes: New Tools for Predicting
Url: http://wimedialab.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.watcyc....
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Hurricane Katrina provided a stark reminder of the importance of accurate hurricane prediction. This video segment, produced a year before Katrina struck, describes the then-current state of research into what causes hurricanes and how scientists use satellite technology to analyze the interior structure of hurricanes in their ongoing efforts to more accurately predict the path and intensity of these storms. The segment is five minutes fifty seconds in length. A background essay and list of discussion questions are also provided.
