This website discusses the science of hurricanes and what people can do to be informed and prepared for storms. Information includes news stories on past and predicted hurricanes, hurricane science, ...

WINDS: Measuring Ocean Winds from Space

This website provides access to images and data gathered by the SeaWinds scatterometer, a microwave radar sensor designed specifically to measure ocean near-surface wind speed and direction. The site ...

Corrections of the Indian gauge data used for early assessments of the great 26 December 2004 earthquake

This resource is an abstract. This study re-evaluates slip velocity over the region of the December 26, 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake. Using new data, the authors found that a mixed mode of slip ...

Listening to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami quake

This resource is an abstract. This study tracks the movement of the rupture that caused the December 26, 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami by comparing recordings of sound waves from five sensors located ...

Estimating Hurricane-Force Winds

This resource provides an abstract: To better measure hurricane-force winds, the authors studied various types of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) wind retrieval schemes applied to the high winds ...

Tsunami "shadows" may allow remote detection of tidal waves

This resource provides an abstract. This study investigates tsunami shadows, extended dark strips on the ocean surface before a tsunami. Such shadows are found to result from an air-sea interaction ...

How volcanic eruptions cause tsunamis

This study investigates the effect of pyroclastic flows on tsunami generation. The authors analyzed several possible mechanisms that occur when the particle rich flows encounter water and conclude ...

Hurricane Katrina Storm Report

This website chronicles the progress of Hurricane Katrina from August 25th to August 29th, 2005. The site includes photos, videos and text written by storm chasers recounting Katrina's first landfall ...

Hurricanes: health and safety

Alaska Volcano Observatory

This resource contains general information about the location and activity of volcanoes in Alaska, including St. Paul and St. George Islands.

Using GPS for earthquake imaging

This resource provides an abstract. The authors used a dense array of Global Positioning System (GPS) stations to model how the Earth slipped during the 2003 8.0-magnitude Tokachi-Oki earthquake near ...

Hurricanes and Climate

This radio broadcast discusses the possible relationship between a warming Earth and stronger hurricanes, and how computer models are used to make predictions about future hurricanes. The clip is 1 ...

Natural Hazards: Hurricanes

This portal provides information on the hazards presented to the Gulf and Atlantic coasts of the United States by hurricanes. A fact sheet summarizes some of the destructive effects and describes ...

3-D Simulations of Magnitude 7.1 Earthquakes Along the Hayward Fault

This set of simulations presents the results of simulated ground motions in the San Francisco Bay Area due to earthquakes of Magnitude 7.1 along the Hayward fault. Three rupture scenarios are ...

Background on the 1900 Galveston Hurricane

A report on the 1900 hurricane that devastated Galveston, Texas is available on the AGU Web site. It is a chapter from the book, Hurricane!: Coping with Disaster (AGU, 2003), covering the event ...

Oceanic carbon may help track hurricanes

Satellite measurements of dissolved organic carbon in the wake of oceanic hurricanes and typhoons provide a new way to estimate the atmosphere-ocean interaction during the major storms. Satellite ...
