Ocean Temperature Response to Hurricanes

It is common to observe trails of cooler water, or cold wakes, along hurricane tracks as a result of wind-induced mixing and turbulence that bring cold waters at depth to the surface. Notice the cooler sea surface temperatures indicated by blue/green colors between Hurricane Humberto and Florida.


This image is from the Multi-scale Ultra-high Resolution (MUR) sea surface temperature (SST) analysis. The MUR SST is a consistent time series of global SST gridded at 1 km resolution, and is available through NASA’s Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC).


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
