19 September 1998 -- Hurricane Georges Over the Atlantic Ocean

This 2-image Java applet will take a minute or two to load...

Hold any mouse button down as you move the cursor across the large GOES-8 visible image; the smaller inset window shows the corresponding GOES-8 10.7 micron longwave IR image. In the visible image, the eye of Hurricane Georges is well-defined; the 10.7 micron IR image shows that cloud top temperatures around the eye-wall region were -65 to -75 C (red to black enhancement).
