NASA Connect - Ahead Above The Clouds

NASA Connect Video containing five segments as described below. NASA Connect Segment exploring new and future technology to help meteorologists predict hurricanes and other severe weather. The video explores GIFTS, or geostationary satellites, and other developing technologies at NASA. NASA Connect Segment explaining what hurricane hunters do and how they do it. The video explores the instruments they use to collect data from a hurricane and the types of data collected such as temperature, moisture, air pressure and wind. NASA Connect Segment explaining software tools and products that use interactivity to network NASA research data. The video describes dynamic websites that use visualization, simulation, and remote sensing tools to help students study hurricanes. NASA Connect Segment explaining the fundamentals of hurricanes and how meteorologists predict hurricanes. The video also features a meteorologists from The Weather Channel to explain how data is collected and how hurricanes are predicted. NASA Connect Segment involving students in an activity that uses a game called the Imperfect Storm. Students must track a hurricane, predict the probability of landfall, and issue watches and warnings.
