NASA's Aerosol Simulation Creates Stunning View of 2017 Hurricanes

NASA uses smoke, dust, and sea salt carried by the wind to visualize weather patterns resulting in 2017's massive storms

The swirling colors in NASA's 2017 Hurricanes and Aerosols Simulation are mesmerizing. By tracking particles such as smoke, dust and sea salt, scientists can better visualize the weather patterns resulting in such massive storms.

This visualization uses data from NASA satellites, combined with mathematical models in a computer simulation allow scientists to study the physical processes in our atmosphere. By following the sea salt that is evaporated from the ocean, you can see the storms of the 2017 hurricane season.
