NASA Video – 2017 Hurricanes

NASA – Public Domain

NASA has compiled a two minute video showing the interactions between the major hurricanes of 2017 with the aerosols dust, smoke and sea salt. The dust (brown) can be seen coming from the Sahara and heading out over the Atlantic Ocean. Most of the smoke (grey) is from wildfires in western North America, with some coming from Portugal. The sea salt (blue) comes from the ocean, of course. The video shows how the hurricanes directly affect the aerosols, and how the larger atmospheric currents affect everything.

Go to the NASA site and watch the video. Make it fullscreen.
