Animation of Hurricane Dorian
atmospheric pressure by All Clear Weather and NWS Radar maps
This is an animated graph of atmospheric pressure data recorded by Android smartphones in Florida during Hurricane Dorian. The data is presented raw, no cleaning or quality control has been done. Approximately 15 phones were in the geographical area during the time frame for this graph.
With quality control and improved measurement density, it should be possible to assimilate these kinds of datapoints into weather models. All Clear Weather (Android play store) is working towards a privacy-conscious, cost-effective way to summarize the pressure data from devices with statistics, removing user location data and still providing useful information to weather models.
