Classify tropical cyclones for a database to help predict the nature of cyclones.
These tropical cyclone images will help take your mind off your own personal storm. Scientists don’t fully understand tropical storms, particularly wind speeds, which makes it hard to determine the impact of climate change on their fierce nature. Infrared satellite images hold the key to unlocking answers about the strength of cyclones, but researchers need you to turn that key! Your role is to classify satellite images using the Dvorak Technique, which involves answering a few questions about what you’re looking at. Humans can do this much better than even the best computers! Your involvement goes towards developing a new database of information for cyclones, so climatologists can better predict future cyclone behavior and intensity.
