Hurricane Floyd's record rainfall in fall of l999 caused massive flooding in North Carolina; sediment and waste washed into rivers of the Atlantic causing major ecological changes. This NASA website provides Landsat 7 & SeaWiFS satellite images of the flooding and the massive flows of sediment and waste runoff into rivers and the Pamlico Sound. Also provides description of Landsat and SEAWiFS ... Full description.

Hurricane Katrina serves as the focus for this lesson on the relationship between sea surface temperatures and hurricane intensity. Students assume the roles of Senior Science Advisors for the Louisiana Environmental Agency to research and plot the data used to analyze Hurricane Katrina. Students then apply that analysis to possible future tropical storms impacting the U.S. Gulf Coast. This lesson ... Full description.

Flooding causes more deaths and damage than any other hydro meteorological phenomena. The Weather Service provides statistics on flood-related impacts: flood fatalities by year from present to 1903; flood damage, including kinds and value of damage, annually from present to l903. Other features include: reports of current flood watches and warnings, outlooks for impending flooding, hydrologic conditions, ... Full description.

The National Weather Service maintains this small series of flooding accounts. The listings include important information on the antecedent conditions in the area of flooding. Most major northeastern floods from the time period of 1927 to the present are discussed. Though the number of examples is small, they represent a diversity of flood conditions and are useful for understanding the critical conditions ... Full description.

This is a web-based activity using satellite images of the Gulf of Maine and the Carribean Sea. Students are asked to examine satellite data of sea surface temperatures. From this data they are to determine the temperature scale and how temperature differences are indicated. They also examine phytoplankton density images to determine where high phytoplankton densities are. Additional activities are ... Full description.
