AbstractRADARSAT-1 ScanSAR Wide mode images of Atlantic basin hurricanes have been acquired over the past two hurricane seasons through the Canadian Space Agency's Disaster Watch program. These images provide a high-resolution view of these intense storms and new insights into their morphology. A new result is recognition of the widespread presence of boundary layer rolls in these storms. In 2001, 'Hurricane Watch ' will focus on obtaining contemporaneous aircraft-based turbulence measurements at RADARSAT-1 pass times.
