NASA Sees Tropical Storm Erin Forming
2013-08-16 06:52:08

NASA Infrared data from NASA's Aqua satellite showed strong thunderstorms had developed in the eastern Atlantic low pressure system that grew into Tropical Storm Erin. NASA's TRMM satellite noticed a "hot tower" in the storm's center, and research has shown tropical cyclones that have them will intensify as this storm did. The low pressure area called System 93L in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean consolidated and organized during the overnight hours of Aug. 14 and 15 and became Tropical...

NASA Paints Panorama Of Pacific Tropical Cyclones
2013-08-09 14:18:07

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center The Central and Eastern Pacific Oceans continue to be active on Aug. 9, as Hurricane Henriette weakens and two other low pressure systems continue developing. All three systems were captured on the one panoramic satellite image. An image from NOAA's GOES-West satellite on Aug. 9 at 1200 UTC (8 a.m. EDT) captured all three tropical systems. The storm farthest west is Hurricane Henriette, followed by System 92E to the east. System 92E is trailed by System...

Tropical Storm Mangkhut Making Vietnam Landfall Seen by NASA
2013-08-08 08:37:11

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Storm Mangkhut had some strong thunderstorms around its center as it began making landfall in northern Vietnam on Aug. 7. Infrared data from NASA's Aqua satellite showed very cold cloud top temperatures of those strong thunderstorms as it passed overhead. On Aug. 6 at 20:55 UTC (4:55 p.m. EDT) NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Mangkhut as it tracked west-northwest through the Gulf of Tonkin on its way to a landfall. Aqua's Atmospheric Infrared...

Two Eastern Pacific Tropical Cyclones Seen By NASA
2013-08-06 08:06:24

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Depression Gil has been weakening for a couple of days, while Tropical Storm Henrietta appears to be strengthening in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. NOAA's GOES-15 satellite captured both storms in one image that clearly showed Henrietta was the larger storm, and NASA's Aqua satellite peered under Henrietta's clouds to reveal a developing eye. Tropical Depression Gil is more than halfway to Hawaii from Mexico and continues to hold onto depression...

Powerful Storms Found By NASA In Quickly Intensifying Tropical Storm Gil
2013-08-01 09:53:08

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center No sooner had Tropical Storm Flossie dissipated then another tropical cyclone called Tropical Depression 7E formed yesterday, July 30, in the eastern Pacific Ocean. NASA's TRMM satellite saw "hot towers" in the storm's center early on July 31, that indicated it would likely strengthen, and it became Tropical Storm Gil hours later. NASA and the Japan Space Agency's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM satellite traveled above intensifying tropical...

Dorian's Remnants Being Watched By NASA
2013-07-30 09:34:44

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Former tropical storm still a remnant low pressure area NASA and NOAA satellites continue to keep a close eye on the remnants of Tropical Storm Dorian as they make their way through the eastern Caribbean Sea. On Saturday, July 27 at 11 a.m. EDT, Dorian was still a tropical storm, but that didn't last. Dorian was near 18.5N and 52.1W, about 720 miles (1,160 km) east of the Northern Leeward Islands. Dorian's maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph (65...

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,...

Newborn Eastern Atlantic Tropical Depression Seen By NASA
2013-07-24 15:08:33

NASA The fourth tropical depression of the Atlantic Ocean hurricane season was born west of the Cape Verde Islands in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean on July 24. NOAA's GOES-13 satellite provides continuous views of the Atlantic Ocean basin and captured an image of the newborn storm. At 5 a.m. EDT on July 24, the National Hurricane Center announced the birth of Tropical Depression 4 or TD4. At that time TD4 had maximum sustained winds near 35 mph (55 kph). It was centered about 310 miles...

Infographic released on the increase in hurricane activity in the U.S.A. Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) July 19, 2013 Empire Construction & Development Corp, owner of HurricaneShuttersFlorida.com, a leader in the hurricane shutter and security shutter industry, has released a new infographic on the overall recent increase in hurricane activity in the United States. Here are the important statistics from the infographic: From 1990~ 2012, an average of 10 tropical cyclones reached tropical...

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...
