dimensional views of hurricanes, in a particular example you're seeing here, this is from october 2nd, where we get to see inside the storm in terms of heavy rainfall near the center as well from the outer band of the storm. satellite has radar which gives us three dimensional view, looking at the structure of the storm. >> that 3d imagery really fast nature to go look at. but it tells you so much about what the storm is actually doing. so, how can these images actually give you clues as to when a storm is about to actually intensify? >> well, matthew intensifies from category one to category five in about a day. and the satelite information gives us depiction of the rainfall field, from that we can get clues whether or not the storm is likely to end tens few by the patterns of rainfall, because the rainfall structure really responds to whether on the environment is
5:55 am
favorable or unfavorable. >> with the torrential rain we're seeing from the caribbean, bahamas, coastal states, it is fast nature to go me seeing how this rainfall is accumulating from space. how do you see images that tell that? >> well, the nasa gpm satellite is really the lynch pin of a constellation of precipitation measuring satellite. we're able to combine all every those estimates to get half hourly precipitation that contract as the storm goes by. so in this animation you see as the storm is passing by haiti, we are basically able to get estimate of about 20 inches or so of rain in that area. which of course, has heavy rain like that, in mountain us terrain, get significant flooding and even landslides. >> certainly helps to just figure out how the forecast will turn, doctor, thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> sure. >> jim, brooke, we send it back to you. >> katie, that was interesting. usually with science, i glaze over, but i actually
