NASA/NOAA Water Vapor Animations Show Where Water Vapor Is Moving Over Oceans
2014-06-26 03:07:03

Rob Gutro, NASA Knowing where water vapor is in the atmosphere is one of many factors forecasters use to identify weather features. The NASA/NOAA GOES Project has now created two new types of animations based on satellite data that indicate where water vapor is moving over the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific oceans. Observations from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) measure the local air temperature in kelvins...

Unclouding Our View Of Future Climate

[ Watch The Video: Atmospheric General Circulation Changes Due To Increased Greenhouse Gases ] Carol Rasmussen, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory If we had a second Earth, we could experiment with its atmosphere to see how increased levels of greenhouse gases would change it, without the risks that come with performing such an experiment. Since we don’t, scientists use global climate models. In the virtual Earths of the models, interlocking mathematical equations take the place...

Supplemental fresh water key to eye and skin health, says water researcher and Bio Logic Aqua Research founder Sharon Kleyne. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) April 30, 2014 According to water researcher and Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne, skin and eyes require hydration in addition to the recommended eight glasses of water a day. According to Kleyne, water ingested through the mouth may not find its way to the skin and eyes quickly enough to prevent dehydration. This is especially...

Bio Logic Aqua Research founder Sharon Kleyne reports on health effects of climate change on skin and eyes, suggests proactive defense. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) April 16, 2014 Climate change, drought, and air pollution play havoc with Earth’s atmospheric water vapor - also called “humidity” - reports water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne. Human skin is sensitive to humidity fluctuations, according to Kleyne, because the body relies on the evaporation of water from the skin’s...

Weather Model Discussion:  How To Use Surface Dew-points For Weather Forecasting Purposes
2013-01-29 08:53:47

Surface Dew-points can play a huge role in weather forecasting. The first such role is that it helps determine the amount of moisture in the atmosphere for a given point. If we look at the current dew-point map above from January 28, 2013 we can note several things of interest. First, if we look at where the black circle is around the number 70, we can make note that this air right off the coast of Texas is at a dew point of 70F. The temperature outside must be above 70F, because the...

Weather Pack For July 30, 2012
2012-08-01 12:22:59

Weather Pack is our way to envision what is happening with the weather and create a weather forecast for a certain area of the United States. Today’s focus is on Southwest Mississippi along the Mississippi River. On the left side we have a Skew-T which is used to help us determine what is happening in the upper levels at our forecast location. On the right side is our morning satellite image; both of these features are important to creating an accurate forecast. The Skew-T will show...

Surface Weather Map Features for July 5, 2012
2012-07-05 10:00:03

The morning weather map for July 5, shows us the current surface pressure readings. Surface Pressure is very important from a meteorological stand point. We use this to help us identify where our surface pressure centers are just like you see above. Our Low pressure area is over Northeast Colorado and also the High pressure over the Ontario area. Surface pressure is taken hourly from the stations and they are also mostly done on a 24hr basis, however some places will only submit their...

The map above shows our dew-point temperatures which is an important temp when it comes to weather. The dew-points help us determine how much moisture is in the atmosphere. If we look at the circle placed over Southern Mississippi we can see temps in the Mid 70’s. That is considered to be very saturated and humid type of weather. When you walk outside it feels very uncomfortable. While if we look back in Nevada we see 15, this is more respectful of being very dry air. This type of air also...

The Heat Wave Of The Central United States
2012-06-26 06:00:45

So why is there so much heat and humidity rising up into the Northern Plains creating a surge of hot weather? The answer is in the weather map above. If we look over Lake Michigan we see an area of High pressure which has a clockwise flow over the region. So places on the East are having cooler weather as they are getting the air from Canada pushing down towards them. North Dakota into the Gulf Coast are on the back side of the high so there air is coming from the Gulf of Mexico. If...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
