It took data gathered from an Air Force hurricane reconnaissance plane to confirm today what satellite remote sensing seemed to indicate yesterday.  Invest 93L is now officially Tropical Depression 17.  Because of ambiguities in information gathered during satellite passes it is, in my opinion, good science to get on site confirmation before fully committing.  As time goes by and the technology continues to develop I’m sure the day will come when satellites peering downward measuring atmospheric and earth surface parameters, gathering information from countless data points (and levels), will provide data so accurate and uncorrupted that very few confirmations will be needed.

I have inserted (above) graphical Advisory 1 from the National Hurricane Center.
