Caption: Sea Surface Temperature, Clouds, and Tropical Depression Storm Hurricane Tracks from June 1, 2005 to August 29, 2005 - This visualization shows sea surface temperatures during the early part of the 2005 hurricane season. Overlaid are infrared cloud data and storm track data. Ocean temperatures are the fuel that drive hurricanes. Notice the correspondence between the storm tracks and the sea surface temperature response; this is particularly noticeable for hurricanes Dennis, Emily, and Katrina.
