We’re talking about the science behind Hurricane Matthew using NASA satellite observations from space. NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement Mission or GPM core satellite saw tremendous amounts of rainfall throughout Haiti. GPM has now captured Matthew near the Florida coast undergoing an eyewall replacement cycle, a process that may re-intensify the storm.
NASA scientists Dr. Owen Kelley and Dr. Dalia Kirschbaum and host Rob Gutro are walking us through the latest NASA satellite images and how this information helps them learn about the science of hurricanes.
