Hurricane Movie as MPEG 605K
Hurricane Movie as QuickTime 616 K
This is a satellite image of Hurricane Bob between 6:00 Standard Time August 17th, 1991 to 6:00 Standard Time August 20th, 1991. Each frame of the movie designates one hour that has elapsed. As a descriptive device this can be a great clip to use with students, because this exercise would require the students to render their own story of what is happening in the hurricane footage. They would need to know basic information such as what colors indicate highest storm activity or whatever you would want to ask them. Information and other images of hurricanes are available at these sites.

Questions and Activities:
After students had obtained the rudimentary knowledge necessary they would then be able to use the annotation tool to answer exploratory and descriptive questions such as:
When exactly (Day/Hour) is the hurricane the worst over coastal Florida?
To answer this students would have to use the frame advance feature of the movie player too find when the storm on the Florida coast was the worst.
