Summary
An indepth video explaining the science behind the life cycle of a hurricane. The volume of rainwater produced by a hurricane during its life time is staggering and is as much as 400 trillion tonnes in case of hurricanes like Isabel. The effect of such voluminous water over the land could lead to destructive flooding and immense damage. Isabel started thousands of miles away near africa, where it just started as a humble ripple.The video deals with indepth reasonings that cause hurricanes and describes some of the latest techniques of understanding, tracking and predicting hurricanes.It describes the ways in which critical measurements and data are collected using the latest mechansims. A circular area usually tops the storm where pressure drops and air begins to roll with earths rotation happening in a counter clock wise direction leading to hot towers and pressure drops. Deep and vigorous clouds called chimney clouds soar above all the other cloud tops. These amazing clouds are short lived but release a tremendous amount of heat into the storms heat engine. The rich data sets collected are used as inputs to sophisticated mathematical and computer models. NASA uses such models with the help of one of the world's fastest supercomputers called project columbia. It describes thermoclines which are the reservoirs of heat in a hurricane.
