This animation is of Hurricane Isabel on September 15, 2003 as it barrels toward the East Coast of the United States. At this time, Isabel had maximum sustained winds of 150 mph with gusts up to 160 mph. The eye of the storm has a diameter of 40 nautical miles. The storm is moving to the west-northwest at 7mph. The animation peels away the cloud layer and reveals the storms rain structure. The yellow isosurface represents areas where at least 0.5 inches of rain fell per hour. The green isosurface show 1.0 inches of rain per hour and red displays where more than 2 inches of rain fell per hour. (less)

NASAs TRMM spacecraft is used by meteorologists to understand Hurricane Ivan. TRMM snapped this view of Hurricane Ivan on September 15, 2004 just before the storm strikes land. The cloud cover is taken by TRMMs Visible and Infrared Scanner (VIRS). The rain structure is taken by TRMMs Precipitation Radar (PR). It looks underneath of the storms clouds to reveal the underlying rain structure. Blue represents areas with at least 0.25 inches of rain per hour. Green shows at least 0.5 inches of rain per hour. Yellow is at least 1.0 inches of rain and Red is at least 2.0 inches of rain per hour. High vertical bands on the outside of the storm indicated that Hurricane Ivan was very likely to spawn tornadoes in Florida and Georgia. (less)
