Hurricane Sandy is seen churning towards the east coast of the United States is this NOAA handout satellite image taken on October 27, 2012.
Hurricane Sandy - October, 2012Compiled by John McDaris, SERC.Hurricane Sandy made itself felt in the Caribbean as a Category 1 storm that moved through the region dumping rain, lashing out with high winds, and causing the deaths of more than 40 people.

Hurricane Sandy SRSOR Movie (full Daylight): This satellite imagery movie by the University of Wisconsin - Madison Space Science and Engineering Center shows Hurricane Sandy approaching the East Coast of the US just as night closes in. NPR Coverage of Hurricane Sandy: National Public Radio has a number of news articles, blog posts, and on-air segments devoted to the progression and development of Hurricane Sandy.

EDT) and shows Hurricane Sandy's huge cloud extent of up to 2,000 miles while centered over the Bahamas, and the line of clouds associated with a powerful cold front approaching the U.S. City officials had ordered residents to evacuate before the storm, but few did, citing little damage following last year's Hurricane Irene. The boardwalk, where residents stroll and gather to playCredit: Tanzilya Mandrikova dominoes, was piled high with sand. Flood waters tested after Hurricane Katrina held lead, arsenic, chromium and fecal coliform bacteria and other hazards, researchers reported in Environmental Science & Technology in 2005. Department of Energy posted an emergency situation report (pdf) on Sandy’s impact in each affected state.

That means that getting the day off of school meant some pretty severe weather was on its way.I was in 2nd grade when Hurricane Allison was on its way, but my best friend and I were mostly excited about having the day off of school. In the wake of Hurricane Dean (a Category 5 storm), Mexican and Canadian researchers recorded animal signs (digging marks, hair, feathers, feces) and tracks in the months before and after the storm.
Breeding colonies in the Pearl River basin lost habitat after Hurricane Katrina but researchers noted in the journal Forest Ecology and Management that those bird numbers didn’t decline, suggesting that the resident populations know how to deal with hurricanes.
The scale is based solely on windspeed so when Sandy lost power, it also lost its hurricane status.The lesser label is a problem for scientists who study storm surges and public officials who have to evacuate entire populations because of flooding.
He explains that as hurricanes move into an area, atmospheric pressure can plummet by nearly 10 percent.


As they explain in their release, a hurricane's energy comes from the ocean and heat release above the storm center.
Surrounding the calm eye of the storm, a hurricane’s eyewall harbors the most violent winds and intense precipitation. Most storms of Sandy’s caliber are strongest in the front, right quadrant.“What’s interesting about the storm is it’s undergoing an extra-tropical transition,” said Forrest Masters, a wind engineer at the University of Florida. A 2005 study in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, however, found no relationship between atmospheric conditions and birth rate.While the jury may be out on this—there’s more obvious (and scientifically defensible) worries about hurricanes and pregnant women. He’s built a career on measuring the metrics of hurricanes, planting his equipment in the path of oncoming super storms to learn more about how they function. Masters has a team of researchers stationed in southern New Jersey, waiting for Hurricane Sandy. We’re trying to make communities more resilient and in order to do that we have to have more accurate information. Scientific American’s Mark Fischetti has the numbers for Hurricane Irene and Hurricane Sandy.
