Hurricane Study And Detection


The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has the responsibility of announcing and categorizing all hurricane and cyclone activity in and around North America. This includes the expected track of the storm, the size, rainfall, storm surges and other aspects that go along with Atlantic and Pacific storm formations. These storms are [...]

Spectroscopy Explained


The study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation is known as spectroscopy. Historically, spectroscopy originated through the study of visible light dispersed according to its wavelength, by a prism. Spectroscopic data is often represented by an emission spectrum, a plot of the response of interest as a function of wavelength or frequency. [...]
