NASA Sees Extra-Tropical Typhoon Wipha Affecting Alaska
2013-10-18 14:37:02

NASA Powerful Typhoon Wipha never made landfall in the northwestern Pacific but affected several land areas there as seen by NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites. By Oct. 18, extra-tropical storm Wipha moved into the Bering Sea and was bringing rains, warmer temperatures and gusty winds to Alaska. NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured an infrared image of ex-typhoon Wipha's clouds over Alaska on Oct. 18 at 1200 UTC/8 a.m. EDT. Forecasters at the National Weather Service in Fairbanks, AK...

Typhoon Francisco Headed To The Other Side Of Guam Seen By NASA
2013-10-18 08:54:35

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Typhoon Francisco on Oct. 17 after it had passed the eastern side of Guam and started to head on a track that would take it past the western side of Guam. Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for Guam on Oct. 17 and 18 (local time). The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of Typhoon Francisco on Oct. 17 at 04:05 UTC in the Pacific Ocean as it started turning to the northwest after...

Tropical Depression 22W Taking A Northern Route In Northwestern Pacific
2013-09-30 13:44:29

NASA The twenty-first and twenty-second tropical depressions of the northwestern Pacific Ocean formed on Sept. 30 and while one is headed to the northeast, the other is headed to the northwest. Tropical Depression 21W also known as Sepat is forecast to turn to the northeast and parallel the coast of eastern Japan, while staying far off-shore. Tropical Depression 22W, however, is taking a different route and heading to the northwest. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument...

Strength Showing In Tropical Depression Sepat
2013-09-30 13:38:00

NASA Tropical Depression Sepat formed in the northwestern Pacific Ocean and NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared data on the storm, revealing some strong thunderstorms. Tropical Depression Sepat, the twenty-first tropical depression in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, formed on Sept. 30. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Sepat on Sept. 30 at 03:23 UTC/Sept. 29 at 11:23 p.m. EDT. As Aqua passed overhead, that Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument that flies aboard Aqua...

Eye In Deadly Typhoon Wutip Imaged By NASA
2013-09-30 12:40:51

NASA NASA's Terra satellite passed over Typhoon Wutip on its approach to a landfall in Vietnam and a visible image revealed its 10-mile-wide eye, and large extent. Wutip was making landfall near Dong Hoi Vietnam around 0900 UTC/5 a.m. EDT. On Sept. 30 at 03:35 UTC/Sept. 29 at 11:35 p.m. EDT, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Terra satellite took a visible image of Typhoon Wutip, clearly showing its eye. At that time, Wutip was...

Satellite Sees New Tropical Storm Wutip In North Pacific Ocean
2013-09-27 12:14:27

NASA Tropical Storm Wutip formed in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean today after being born on yesterday, Sept. 26 as Tropical Depression 20W. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the tropical cyclone as it was intensifying and saw banding of thunderstorms circling the storm. When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Wutip in the South China Sea on Sept. 26 at 17:35 UTC/1:35 p.m. EDT, it was still tropical depression 20W. Infrared data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument...

Transitioning Tropical-Storm Pabuk Viewed By NASA
2013-09-26 12:32:08

NASA Typhoon Pabuk weakened and the core of the storm was changing from a warm core tropical system to a cold core low pressure system as it continued paralleling the coast of Japan on Sept. 26. NASA's Aqua satellite provided a visible image of the transforming storm that had lost its eye. On Sept. 26, 2013 at 03:55 UTC/Sept. 25 at 11:55 p.m. EDT, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Storm...

Typhoon Pabuk's Eye Now Closed Seen By NASA Satellites
2013-09-25 13:02:52

NASA Typhoon Pabuk's eye was clear on visible and infrared NASA satellite imagery on Sept. 24, and one day later high clouds covered the center and Pabuk's eye was "closed." Satellite data also showed that Pabuk's eye shrunk by about 5 nautical miles in the last day. When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Typhoon Pabuk on Sept. 24 at 16:05 UTC/12:05 p.m. EDT, the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder instrument viewed the storm in infrared light. The AIRS data clearly showed that Pabuk had a 30...

Typhoon Pabuk's Veiled Eye Seen By NASA
2013-09-24 10:57:38

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite orbit around the Earth took it right over Typhoon Pabuk and the image showed an eye veiled with some high clouds. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Typhoon Pabuk on Sept. 24 at 04:05 UTC as it was nearing Japan. In the image, high clouds draped over Pabuk's eye. Pabuk's eye is about 30 nautical miles/34.5 miles/55.5 km wide, about three times larger than...

Typhoon Pabuk Continues To Strengthen
2013-09-23 12:41:22

NASA Typhoon Pabuk (was 98W) continued to strengthen as it moved north through the northwestern Pacific Ocean on Sept. 23, and NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared image of the storm. The NASA image showed powerful thunderstorms east of the storm's center. On Sept. 23 at 3:17 UTC/Sept. 22 at 11:17 p.m. EDT NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Typhoon Pabuk in the northwestern Pacific Ocean and the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument captured an infrared image. The AIRS...

Post Storm Analysis Of Typhoon Sanvu
2012-07-17 14:09:29

Typhoon Sanvu formed to the Southeast of Guam on May 21, 2012 and began to make its track to the North. Sanvu was responsible for strong winds and rain in the Guam area. It then moved to the North and impacted the island known as Iwo To. The pressure dropped to around 975mb with winds around 70mph when it made landfall on Iwo To. The eye wall passed right over the island on the evening of the 25th of May. When Sanvu left the island of Iwo To it rapidly transitioned into an...

Typhoon Guchols Impact In Japan
2012-06-20 08:07:11

Left Image Credit: Joshua Kelly - Right Image Credit: NASA Typhoon Guchol, these past few days, had made it to Super Typhoon strength which would be the same as saying that it was a CAT 3 or larger storm. It quickly raced up towards Okinawa Japan leaving its first imprints with reports of winds near 60-70mph with higher gusts. It then moved up northward into Shikoku Japan where it made landfall with wind reports near Muroto-Misaki around 70mph with higher gusts. Then it made its way...
