NASA's Aqua satellite saw some of the high thunderstorms within Carlos over land and extending north into the Timor Sea. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument onboard NASA's Aqua satellite measures cloud-top, sea surface and land temperatures. Those are important factors in determining the strength and power of a...
