This resource is an abstract. The authors demonstrate for the first time that satellite images of dissolved organic matter may also help researchers approximate the mixing of surface-level ocean water during a hurricane or typhoon. They speculate that the observations can be used to estimate the depth of waters churned up by a strong, wind-driven storm, which could improve hurricane tracking.
