Investigate the role that clouds play in severe tropical storms, in this interactive from the NOVA Cloud Lab. Fueled by warm tropical waters, Earth's most powerful storms threaten thousands of coastal communities worldwide each year with torrential rains, powerful winds, and deadly surges of ocean water. Scientists use sophisticated instruments to investigate the development of tropical storm systems and better predict their impacts. This interactive from NOVA Labs gives you direct access to the types of data, imagery, and tools scientists use to make predictions so that you can begin to investigate storms developing right now!
