Special Issue: The Tenth Anniversary of the National Oceanographic Partnership Program

On the Cover: Hurricane Gustav and Tropical Storm Hanna on August 31, 2008, showing the coal trail in sea surface temperature (SST) on the east side of Gustav. Warm SSTs can strengthen hurricanes. The SSTs shown in this image were produced by the National Oceanographic Partnership Program’s Multi-Sensor Improved Sea Surface Temperature (MISST) project.
