Hurricane Rita Aftermath
Background info about Hurricanes
Hurricanes happen in these general 6 areas the most, the East Pacific Ocean, West Pacific Ocean, North Atlantic, Southwestern Pacific, North Indian Ocean, and the South Indian Ocean.
2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season
To examine authentic sea surface temperature data to explore how hurricanes extract heat energy from the ocean surface.
What other Effects on SST may be Occuring?
Explain the effect on the temperature in your line plot after the hurricane passed?
How long did it take for the SST to return to the previous temperature?
In the plot that I was given it did not show that the temperature got to the previous temperature but as said in my first question it did get close to the previous temperature but not quite. I think if we would've tracked it for a few more days we would've clearly been able to see the exact date.
