The simulation on this page shows a blue circle for
Hurricane Alberto (August 2000) and two balloon trajectories.
The blue trajectory is an uncontrolled balloon. The
red trajectory is a controlled trajectory with 2 m/s
of trajectory control authority. The simulation shows
has 1 frame every 4 hours. Real winds from UKMO are
used in this simulation.
This simulation shows the potential importance of a
Ballon Guidance System for monitoring hurricane activity.
