Historic Tropical Cyclone Tracks. Like streamers of splattered paint, the tracks of nearly 150 years of tropical cyclones weave across the globe in this map.

Historic Tropical Cyclone Tracks

The map is based on all storm tracks available from the National Hurricane Center and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center through September 2006. The accumulation of tracks reveals several details of hurricane climatology, such as where the most severe storms form and the large-scale atmospheric patterns that influence the track of hurricanes. Over time, the repeated passage of strong storms through the same regions creates solid swashes of color: bright red in the Western Pacific near the Philippines, where numerous Category 5 storms have traveled; orange and gold in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, where Category 3 and 4 storms often pass.

The blues and light yellows reveal storms in a weaker state: near the equator, in their first stages of development; over land, as they run out of steam; in the mid-latitudes, where they encounter cooler waters.

Sailors turn scientists to create the world’s biggest marine plankton survey

Credit: Richard Kirby A unique, citizen science study uses a Secchi disk and a free mobile phone app called Secchi to conduct a vital global study of the sea’s phytoplankton. Within the sunlit surface of the sea begins the marine food chain. Here, microscopic, free-floating, plant-like cells called phytoplankton live and use the energy in sunlight to combine carbon dioxide and water to create sugar and oxygen in the process we call photosynthesis.
