NASA Watching Post-Atlantic Hurricane Season Low
2013-12-05 19:51:44

NASA System 90L has developed in the eastern Atlantic Ocean today and NASA's Aqua satellite took an infrared look at the low pressure area to see if it had development potential. System 90L was located near 31.8 north and 28.1 west, about 450 miles south of the Azores Islands. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the low pressure area on Dec. 5 and the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument captured infrared data on the clouds, revealing the strongest thunderstorms northeast of...

NASA's HS3 Hurricane Mission Wraps Up For 2013
2013-12-03 09:21:01

NASA NASA's Hurricane and Severe Storms Sentinel airborne mission known as HS3 wrapped up for the 2013 Atlantic Ocean hurricane season at the end of September, and had several highlights. HS3 will return to NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va., for the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season.

A new study published in the December issue of GSA Today examines the geological legacy of Hurricane Irene, not only in terms of its impact on current coastal conditions but also in what it can tell geoscientists about the past. Hurricane Irene made landfall in Onslow Bay, North Carolina, USA, on 27 August 2011, at which time it had been downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane after hitting the Bahamas at Category 3 strength. In their GSA Today article, geoscientists Scott P. Hippensteel,...

Tropical Cyclone Alessia Forms, Threatens Western Australia
2013-11-22 12:31:00

NASA The low pressure area previously known as System 90S has continued organizing and consolidating and infrared data from NASA's Aqua satellite helped confirm its strengthening into Cyclone Alessia in the Southern Indian Ocean. Alessia formed off of Western Australia's Kimberley coast and the first Cyclone Warnings and Watches of the season are now in effect. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument called MODIS that flies aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a...

Tropical Storm Helen Affecting Southeastern India
2013-11-21 15:37:40

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NASA's Aqua satellite captured visible and infrared imagery of slow-moving Tropical Storm Helen as it was spreading its western clouds over parts of southeastern India on November 21. On Nov. 21 at 07:55 UTC/2:55 a.m. EDT the MODIS or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Cyclone Helen that showed clouds in the storm's western quadrant had already spread over...

NASA Map Of Typhoon Haiyan Helps Disaster Response
2013-11-14 12:54:46

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online After Typhoon Haiyan tore through the Philippines, a joint team from NASA and the Italian Space Agency quickly generated a map using satellite imagery that could be used to survey the devastation and assist recovery operations. The 27-by-33-mile map focuses on a region near Tacloban City, where one of the most powerful recorded storms on Earth made landfall on Nov. 8, 2013. Using radar data from the Italian Space Agency's...

[ Watch the Video: UN Report Turns Up The Heat On 2013 ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As you raise a glass of your favorite beverage on this New Year’s Eve, you may want to toast to 2013 being one of the warmest years since modern records began in 1850. According to a new report from the United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization (WMO), 2013 is currently on track to be tied with 2003 as the seventh warmest year on record, with worldwide land and...

Warm Sea Surface Helped Strengthen Tropical Storm 30W
2013-11-06 11:15:11

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the South China Sea and revealed that warm sea surface temperatures and low wind shear enabled Tropical Depression 30W to strengthen into a tropical storm. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm 30W on Nov. 5 at 0611 UTC/1:11 a.m. EDT as it was making its way west through the South China Sea. The infrared AIRS data provides valuable cloud top temperature data that indicates how high the thunderstorms are the make up the tropical cyclone....

Hurricane Sandy's Impact Measured By Flickr Photo Posts
2013-11-06 12:24:36

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Hurricane Sandy hit 24 states in Late October last year, decimating parts of New Jersey and its famous boardwalk, becoming the second-costliest hurricane in US history. Scientists have now measured the superstorm's impact by using pictures posted on photo-sharing site Flickr. Thirty-two million photos of the weather phenomenon were posted on Flickr between October 20 and November 20 2012. Researchers, publishing a paper in the journal...

NASA Sees Short Life Of Southern Indian Ocean's First Tropical Cyclone
2013-10-28 18:31:31

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center The first tropical cyclone of the Southern Indian Ocean season lasted about one day. Tropical Cyclone 01S was born on Oct. 27 and by Oct. 28 had become a remnant low. The first tropical cyclone of the Southern Indian Ocean cyclone season formed on Oct. 27 near 13.1 south and 63.4 east, about 570 nautical miles northeast of Port Louis, Mauritus. It was moving to the west-southwest at 7 knots. Maximum sustained winds were near 35 knots. On Oct. 27,...

Coastal Upwelling- this is defined as the moving of water from the deeper oceans upwards to the surface of the ocean very commonly found along our cold ocean currents, which are found along the West Coast of the United States and off the Peru coast. Coastal Sinking- this is defined as the warm waters moving in from the east and hitting the coastline and slowly filtering down towards the deeper ocean waters very slowly. This feature is common in our warm ocean currents such as the United...

Tropical Storm Debbie on a surface chart. It is noted that just off the coast of Northern Florida a 999 surface pressure is found indicating to a meteorologist that an area of Lower pressure is arriving. In this case it’s Tropical Storm Debbie. The red lines indicate lines of equal pressure. Meteorologists label them in 4mb increments. So looking at the map it’s noted that there is a 08/04/00/96 line present in the photo highlighted with red. Another feature is that the more of these...

Difference Between Onshore And Offshore Flow
2012-07-16 11:34:51

Onshore flow describes the movement of any weather feature moving towards the shore. The most common weather features that are affiliated with onshore flow are Hurricanes and the daily sea breeze. What happens with a hurricane is the Northeast side of the storm will produce winds out of the Southeast to South which will force the ocean water (Storm Surge) towards the coast along with all the extensive precipitation shields. Another feature is known as the Sea breeze. The sea breeze happens...
