Identify the components of a hurricane.
Eye: center of hurricane, clear, calm, low pressure
Eye wall: ring of thunderstorms around eye
Spiral bands: bands of t-storms extending out from eye wall
Explain how hurricanes get and utilize heat energy, and why hurricanes can

Use warm, humid boundary-layer air as fuel, consume nearby supplies of
fuel, run out of fuel and die
Ambient atmosphere might have right amount of wind sear that: continually
blows fresh fuel into storm, blows t-storm to new regions
They manipulate environment to continually create new fuel from heat
stored in ocean Evaporation from ocean surface, adds significant amounts of moisture into
