7 day average SST image from 24
August (260 Kb) This image is derived from the average composite sea
surface temperature (SST) data over 7 days ending 24 August 1999. The
averaging is done to remove clouds. The temperature scale for the SST in
this image is 25 to 32 C.
The track of Dennis is overlaid on this image. Notice how Dennis
intensifies as it moves over warmer water.
