Hurricane Data Analysis Tool

The Hurricane Data Analysis Tool (formerly the TRMM QuikScat Analysis tool) allows users to overlay various data products relevant in the study of hurricanes in an area plot, a time plot or animation using an interactive tool. The data products being offered include NCEP/CPC 4-km Global (60 deg N - 60 deg S) Merged IR Brightness Temperature Dataset, TRMM's product 3B42, TMI's sea surface temperature, NCEP Reanalysis sea level pressure, QuikScat's wind and global Merged IR product. This tool is beneficial for users to obtain a visualization of a single product, animation or a comparison of two products during a hurricane event.

Please see the FAQ for more information.
