In the link above, the article tells us that hurricanes seem to worst each time and the records keep getting higher and higher. Hurricane Katrina and Wilma seemed to be the fastest as far as wind speed. Hurricanes in 2005 season became the most destructive, largely due to Hurricane Katrina. To repair damages over $100 billion dollars was spent towards the repair.
You might be wondering where do hurricane occur? In the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and the Eastern Pacific Ocean, they are called hurricanes. In the Western Pacific Ocean, they are called typhoons.

Hurricanes begin to form by tropical depressions. Then the tropical depression begins to create a tropical storm. Quickly, the tropical storm begins to make a actual, official hurricane. The wind speeds seem to accelerate and moves onto land.

A hurricane is categorized by its wind speed using the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.

To examine authentic sea surface temperature data to explore how hurricanes extract heat energy from the ocean surface.


Yes, there is a evidence of a change in sea surface temperature! September 20th 2005 the surface temperature was around 29. It got a little bit more warmer on September 22nd the temperature got up around 30. September 24th it reached landfall. Started to get cooler after the hurricane left.

A Hurricane has something to do with warm water! It seems that the warmer the surface temperature got the stronger the hurricane got. The Hurricane lost power when it made landfall. Soon after the Hurricane left, the water got cooler.

In the line graph the date ,which is the dependent variable, seems to rise around September 5th-20th. The temperature, which is the independent variable, was around 29.5 degrees Celsius. On the September 25th, the temperature decreased to about 25.5 degrees Celsius.
Based on the line graph the independent variable is the temperature. Around the dates September the 30th through October the 23rd it's at a temperature 28.5 degrees Celsius. It took approximately 23 days to it return to its previous temperature.The rest of the dates after those began to decreased again.
