The Atlantic hurricane season started early in 2008, with the tropical storm Arthur recorded on May 31. A-Train shows the cross section of Arthur as seen by CloudSAT in Google Earth. By July 20, Dolly was the fourth tropical storm, and it developed into a hurricane of category 2 on July 23, just before it started to pound the Gulf coast of Texas and Mexico. This is how MODIS/Aqua saw Hurricane Dolly on that day. This image can be interactively viewed in Google Earth by downloading the KMZ file provided on the site. The red line represents Dolly\\\'s track. Please see the A-Train Data Depot (http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/atdd/) for more information.  disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/atdd/
