Navigate the eye of a hurricane


Find out what makes a hurricane tick with this VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) visualization. See the flows of wind that make up the engine of the hurricane, and travel into the eye using the viewpoints menu on your viewer. You can also learn about outflow, the eye, and feeder bands by clicking on hot spots.

The setup is simple:

First you'll need a PC with at least a 133 MHz Pentium® processor (it will work best with a Pentium® III processor).

If you don't already have one, download and install a VRML plugin from one of these sites:

Cosmo Player (recommended)   or   World View
