This movie shows the entirety of the 2009 Pacific Hurricane Season using GOES-West full disk infrared imagery paired with the sea surface temperature anomaly data from the POES satellite. El Niño causes temperatures in the Pacific to rise above their normal levels, which also promotes the strengthening of hurricanes. The El Niño was first diagnosed by NOAA in July, after the start of the hurricane season. Both the El Niño and intensity of hurricanes increased in the late summer and fall.
