AATSR image acquired 1 September 2004 that combined temperature measurements for the sea surface around Frances but also the cloud top temperature - see colour chart in Kelvin. The image data can be correleated with MERIS cloud top pressure data. Warm water at the base of the hurricane and latent heat produced by condensation at the top of the hurricane keep Frances' heat engine running. Image processed by Brockmann Consult.
