Storm Season

September 2009
Weekly Reader - Edition 2;Sep2009, Vol. 79, p2
The article offers information on hurricanes in the U.S. Defined as storms accompanied with heavy rain and strong winds, hurricanes can cause to trees and homes. The hurricane season in the country spans from the months of June to November. Hurricanes form over warm ocean water and it spins because of the winds.

    Upper oceanic heat content (OHC) in advance of a hurricane is generally superior to prestorm sea surface temperature (SST) for indicating favorable regions for hurricane intensification and maintenance. OHC is important because a hurricane's surface winds mix the upper ocean and entrain cooler...
