Student, Need Help Finding Data
      #64507 - Sun Jan 29 2006 01:12 PM

Hi. As my name suggests, I am a junior at Lake Brantley High School in Seminole County. I am working on a science fair project in which I am to perform a statistical analysis of water temperature and air pressure changes, with regards to hurricanes.

To be honest, I thought that this project would be far simpler than it has turned out to be! I am having tremendous trouble finding the data that I need. I have been looking for water temperature and air pressure of areas before, after, and during hurricanes. I have had no success.

I found this site, and I might be saved! I have not gotten a chance to look through the site yet, as I have a prior engagement, but I had just enough time to leave this plea. Hopefully someone here can save my science fair project! I am in dire need of this data, and any help anyone can provide would be incredible. If someone could point me in the direction of a link, or send me data, it would be an enormous aide. I really do need help.

Regardless of whether or not you can help me, thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,
Student

The Faculty and Staff at LSU ESL have a website with information on several Hurricanes over the last 5-6 years. Department Chair is Dr Nan Walker PhD.

The images on the first link have storm tracks and Sea Height in centimeters superimposed on them. That might require a great deal of conversion for your project.

Another site with information. Colorado State Univ.

There are other sites. The best seem to be colleges and government. I obtained the above using Google.

Thank you very much! I found some data on hurricane air pressure, and those thermal pictures will help A LOT. I really apreciate it. I'll put the work into converting it

I'm trying to compile all of the data by the end of this weekend, so this is a big leap forwards. Thanks again!
