Hurricane Barbara Quickly Weakens To A Depression Seen By NASA
2013-05-30 15:42:01

NASA Tropical Storm Barbara strengthened into a hurricane just before it made landfall late on May 29, and after landfall it weakened into a tropical depression. NASA satellite imagery showed that cloud tops warmed and thunderstorms became more fragmented around the storm's center after Barbara made landfall. Barbara is moving across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec today, May 30. Barbara could regenerate over the Bay of Campeche, on the Gulf of Mexico side of Mexico, and satellite imagery is...

New Metric For Determining Destructive Power Of Hurricanes
2013-04-29 18:15:08

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In the last eight years alone, the US has seen seemingly low-powered storms gather strength and turn themselves into the costliest storms to ever affect our nation. This propensity for sudden storm strengthening led researchers from Florida State University to develop a new metric for the measurement of seasonal Atlantic tropical cyclone activity. This new measurement focuses not only on the size of the storm, but also on its...

Active Southern Indian Ocean's Tropical Storm 18S Spotted By NASA
2013-02-26 07:56:42

NASA The eighteenth tropical cyclone of the Southern Indian Ocean season formed over the weekend of Feb. 23-24 along with Cyclone Rusty as Cyclone Haruna crossed southern Madagascar. NASA's Aqua satellite measured Tropical Storm 18S' cloud top temperatures and saw powerful thunderstorms around the storm's core. Cyclone Rusty is nearing a landfall in northwestern West Australia, while Tropical Storm 18S is headed in a similar direction. Tropical Storm 18S (TS18S) was born on Feb. 24...

Tropical Cyclone Garry Continues To Intensify Seen By NASA
2013-01-25 10:54:31

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Cyclone Garry is in a good environment to intensify and satellite imagery from NOAA's GOES-15 satellite helped confirm that the storm has become more organized. NOAA's GOES-15 satellite captured an infrared image of Tropical Storm Garry when it was located about 330 nautical miles (379.8 miles/ 611.2 km) east of Pago Pago, American Samoa. The image, created by the NASA GOES Project at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., was...

Tropical Cyclone Oswald Weakens Over Queensland's Cape York Peninsula Seen By NASA
2013-01-23 09:31:32

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NASA's Aqua satellite documented the formation of Tropical Storm Oswald in the Gulf of Carpentaria on Jan. 21 and the landfall on Jan. 22 in the southwestern Cape York Peninsula of Queenstown, Australia. Oswald has since become remnant low pressure area over land. Tropical Storm Oswald was hugging the southwestern coast of the Cape York Peninsula, Queensland, Australia when NASA's Aqua satellite first flew overhead on Jan. 21 at 0430 UTC (Jan. 20 at...

Tropical Storm Bopha Intensifies Seen By NASA
2012-11-29 09:04:14

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Storm Bopha continues to intensify in the western North Pacific Ocean as it heads toward Yap State, triggering more warnings and watches. Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite captured over two days revealed that the storm had consolidated, intensified and developed a large band of strong thunderstorms south of the center, that resemble a tail. Infrared images of Tropical Storm Bopha were taken by the AIRS instrument on NASA's Aqua...

NASA Study Finds Hurricane Strength Forecasts Could Be Improved
2012-11-28 15:58:25

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Forecasters could soon be better able to predict how intense tropical cyclones like Hurricane Sandy will be by analyzing relative-humidity levels within their large-scale environments, finds a new NASA-led study. Scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., UCLA and the University of Hawaii at Manoa analyzed relative humidity data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua spacecraft for nearly 200 North...

Night-time View Of Sandy's Landfall Captured By NASA/NOAA's Suomi NPP
2012-11-01 06:10:48

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center As Hurricane Sandy made a historic landfall on the New Jersey coast during the night of Oct. 29, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on NASA/NOAA's Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite captured this night-time view of the storm. This image provided by University of Wisconsin-Madison is a composite of several satellite passes over North America taken 16 to18 hours before Sandy's landfall. The storm was captured by a...
