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...

Heavy Rains Increase Nutrient Pollution Flow Down Mississippi River

NOAA NOAA-supported scientists found a large Gulf of Mexico oxygen-free or hypoxic "dead" zone, but not as large as had been predicted. Measuring 5,840 square miles, an area the size of Connecticut, the 2013 Gulf dead zone indicates nutrients from the Mississippi River watershed are continuing to affect the nation's commercial and recreational marine resources in the Gulf. "A near-record area was expected because of wet spring conditions in the Mississippi watershed and the resultant...

New GOES Satellite Will Provide Better, Faster Data To Forecasters
2013-07-16 15:21:42

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The next generation of GOES satellites will have the ability to take full-disk images of Earth at five-minute intervals. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) GOES-R satellite will be able to snap images of everything it can see in the same length of time it takes the current Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) series to capture a small image of a stormy region. NASA says this upgrade will...

Understanding The Breeding Structure Of Killer Whales
2013-07-13 06:52:08

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Orcas, or killer whales, are found in every ocean in the world making them a global force to be reckoned with. They have remarkable social bonds and sophisticated hunting techniques that make them the top predators in the oceans. For a long time, scientists assumed these clever, highly mobile whales bred with each other freely in the seemingly homogeneous ocean. Dedicated researchers have furthered our understanding of the oceans...

NASA Used Suomi NPP Satellite To Monitor Oklahoma Tornado
2013-07-09 18:23:57

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When NASA climate scientists decided to monitor a storm system headed for Oklahoma in the middle of May, they probably weren't expecting to track one of the deadliest and most powerful tornadoes to ever hit the United States. The deadly EF5 tornado struck Moore, Oklahoma on the afternoon of May 20, 2013 - ultimately killing 23 people and injuring 377. One of the NASA observers on that day was a previously planned calibration flight...
