Citizen Science: Volunteer your time to help with Hurricane Research!

Interested in weather and like looking at satellite images?? Or maybe you just like hurricanes. With a little time, you can provide some valuable information to hurricane researchers. Satellites circle the earth several times a day and constantly collect data. Since this is too much data for any group of scientists to look at they need your help! It's really easy to get started, and you don't need to be a weather expert to start helping with this hurricane research. Go to  http://www.cyclonecenter.org/ to get started. Simply answer a few questions about images of hurricanes like, "how is this hurricane shaped" and "which hurricane looks stronger?"
