Hurricanes are large, rotating
storms that form when water from the surface of the ocean in the tropics evaporates and condenses to form clouds and rain.
Atlantic hurricane season
begins on June 1, and several new weather satellites will collect valuable data to improve hurricane forecasting this year.
Satellites provide vital
data on current weather conditions, allowing meteorologists to predict the path and severity of these storms more accurately.
Several recently launched
satellites are providing more accurate data than ever, including the satellites of COSMIC-2, which launched in 2019.
a network of six small satellites, will also launch in the next few months.
Around 160 satellites
currently collect data on Earth's weather and atmosphere and beam that information back to us
