Latest Tropical cyclone Stories
NASA's Aqua satellite flew overhead as the fourth tropical cyclone of the Southern Indian Ocean cyclone season developed today, December 18, while it was passing to the northwest of Cocos Island, Australia.
Approximately 1,900 Arctic cyclones occurred between 2000 and 2010 – 40 percent more than previously thought, according to research presented Thursday at the 2013 fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, California.
Tropical Cyclone Madi is headed for a landfall in southeastern India, and NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's TRMM satellite found that rainfall was heaviest north of the storm's center.
Rainfall data from the TRMM satellite was compiled and analyzed for tropical cyclones affecting the Philippines in 2013 and made into a movie.
Climatologist DeWayne Cecil, PhD reports on climate change, hurricanes and typhoons on the Sharon Kleyne Hour, hosted by Bio Logic Aqua Founder. Grants Pass,
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tropical Storm Alberto was named the first tropical storm of the Atlantic 2012 Hurricane Season on May 20th at 1200PM CDT. The location of the storm at this time was just to the southeast of South Carolina. The winds were estimated at 40kts gusting to 50kts. On May 20th at 0600PM CDT Tropical Storm Alberto had winds estimated at 45kts with gust to near 55kts. At this time the storm was just to the east of Savannah Georgia and was moving towards the southwest. May 21st at 0600PM CDT...
Say it’s not so, but we could be very well on the verge of entering into an EL-Nino cycle soon. How soon? The latest forecast issued by the Climate Prediction Center has upped the chances of seeing EL-Nino this year now at 61% with the favorable time period pointing towards the 3rd quarter (July-September). What does this mean to you? Well it all depends on where you’re living as EL-Nino has a wide array of impacts that are different everywhere around the globe. Here are a few...
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...
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...
