Ten years ago this month, Hurricane Katrina made landfall over New Orleans.
Since then, climate scientists at NASA have made huge strides in hurricane monitoring and now very literally have a much clearer picture of how these storms form and behave.
Visualizing the interiors of storms helps predict how big they’ll get and where they might go — important information when lives and livelihoods are at stake.
