Skip to 0 minutes and 14 seconds Each year hurricanes cost thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars worth of destruction in their wake. And we have a team of highly trained and motivated scientists who are making use of the latest technology to track and predict the path of these hurricanes. Using satellite tracking data, we will show you how you can use this data to track and chart the progress of hurricanes and how to use that data to predict the path of upcoming hurricanes. We use data from a range of satellites to examine the Earth’s atmosphere. So this gives us a really good insight as to whether a hurricane is likely to intensify or weaken.
