NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Former Tropical Storm Dorian has been hanging around the Caribbean Sea for a couple of days, and appears stretched out on satellite imagery. NOAA's GOES-13 satellite has been capturing images of the movement of Dorian since it was born. NASA's GOES Project at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. created an image of the storm using GOES-13 satellite data on July 30 at 1415 UTC/10:15 a.m. EDT.

Tropical Storm Dorian Put In The Infrared Spotlight By NASA
2013-07-26 08:45:38

NASA The newest tropical storm to form in the Atlantic was put in NASA's "infrared spotlight." NASA's AIRS instrument uses infrared imaging to analyze tropical cyclones and captured an image of newborn Tropical Storm Dorian. NASA's Atmospheric Infrared Sounder instrument also known as AIRS, flies aboard the Aqua satellite. AIRS uses infrared light and shined that light on Tropical Storm Dorian on July 25 at 03:29 UTC (11:29 p.m. EDT, July 24). Infrared data helps determine temperature,...

Tropical Storms Gain Strength Over Land Due To 'Brown Ocean' Phenomenon
2013-07-17 08:20:09

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Meteorologists were stumped by Tropical Storm Erin in 2007. Unlike most tropical cyclones, which dissipate after making landfall and being weakened by everything from friction and wind shear to loss of the ocean as a source of heat energy, Erin intensified as it tracked through Texas. Erin's eye formed over Oklahoma, and grew stronger than it had been over the ocean as it spun over the southern plains. According to NASA-funded...

Satellite Spots Chantal's Remnants Over Bahamas
2013-07-15 11:24:48

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NOAA's GOES-13 satellite spotted the remnant clouds and showers from former Tropical Storm Chantal lingering over the Bahamas on July 12. Chantal's chances for regeneration are diminishing because of upper-level winds. A visible image from NOAA's GOES-13 satellite at 9:45 a.m. EDT on July 12, 2013 showed Chantal's remnant clouds and showers moving north in the Atlantic. The image of Chantal's remnants resembled the sideways view of a jellyfish. The GOES...

NASA NASA's TRMM and Terra satellites provided a look at Tropical Storm Chantal's cloud cover and rainfall as it entered the eastern Caribbean Sea. Since forming on the night (EDT) of July 7, 2013 in the tropical central Atlantic, Tropical Storm Chantal has continued to race westward at up to 29 mph (~46 kph)and entered the eastern Caribbean on July 9 with sustained winds reported at 65 mph (100 kph) by the National Hurricane Center. NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM...

NASA Infrared Data Shows Tropical Depression Erick Continues To Weaken
2013-07-09 14:37:15

NASA Infrared imagery from the AIRS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite revealed that Erick, now a tropical depression has reduced in strength and size and continues to weaken. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Tropical Depression Erick late on July 8 and captured an infrared image that revealed Erick was quickly weakening. The AIRS image taken on July 8 at 4:17 p.m. EDT showed a small area of clouds and circulation near the...

Tropical Storm Chantal Develops Quickly In Atlantic Seen By NASA
2013-07-09 09:41:24

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center The third tropical cyclone of the Atlantic Ocean season developed in the Atlantic and not in the Gulf of Mexico as the previous two systems,Tropical Storm Chantal. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Chantal on July 7 at 12:15 p.m. EDT when it was located off the coast of Brazil. The highest and strongest thunderstorms (that cast shadows on...

Second Tropical Depression Of Atlantic Season Forms
2013-06-18 07:57:15

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Depression 2 formed in the western Caribbean Sea during the early afternoon hours (Eastern Daylight Time) on June 17. NOAA's GOES-13 satellite captured an image of the storm as it consolidated enough to become a tropical depression while approaching the coast of Belize. NOAA's GOES-13 satellite sits in a fixed orbit and monitors the weather in the eastern half of the continental United States and the Atlantic Ocean. NASA's GOES Project at NASA's...

Debbie formed in the warm waters of the Southeast Gulf and slowly moved northward. Debbie got picked up by the trough which was located to the North of it for a time which allowed it to make the initial turn towards Florida. Once it got near Florida, it got stuck in between the trough and ridge that was back to the west causing the storm to stall in one place or become stationary. This occurred just of the coast of Florida which resulted in a huge disaster for the state. Now Debbie has become...

The Loop Ocean Current
2012-07-10 18:20:32

When it comes to learning about the weather it is very important to understand about the oceans. The reason for this is that ocean currents can play a major role on not only weather but also the climate of a region. The current that we are looking at is called the Loop Current. If you look at the image above you can see that it’s situated just off the west coast of Florida and extends into the Gulf of Mexico. The Loop current is a warm current and this creates a warmer surrounding in...

Location A: This is known as the Eye or the center of the Hurricane/Typhoon/Cyclone. This region is highlighted by the potential for calm winds and also the fact that it’s possible to see the sun or moon during the night. It also gives people false sense that the storm may be done, when in fact it is only at the half way point. Location B: This region is known as feeder bands that outline the center of the storm. In this region you will see very strong winds and also tornadoes and heavy...
