  • Educação Superior::Ciências Exatas e da Terra::Oceanografia
  • This dataset, from August 17, 2010, generated by the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, uses temperature and ocean surface height data to determine how much energy is available to intensify hurricanes. By knowing how deep down the ocean is at least 26 degrees C, its possible to estimate how much energy is available. Greater depths of 26 degree C or higher ocean temperatures equal more energy for hurricanes to intensify. These values are plotted here in terms of units of energy (KiloJoules) per unit area (square centimeters). The more intense the red color, the deeper the warm waters extend into the ocean, and the more energy to fuel cyclones
