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. During the 2013 mission, two unmanned Global Hawks flew from Wallops for the first time. The mission highlights included studying the Saharan Air Layer, following the genesis of a...

NASA To Investigate Tropical Storm Humberto
2013-09-17 10:29:21

NASA Humberto is the second "zombie" tropical storm of the Atlantic Ocean season. That is, it's the second tropical storm that degenerated into a remnant low pressure area only to make a comeback as a tropical storm. NASA's HS3 hurricane mission sent an unmanned Global Hawk Aircraft out to the eastern Atlantic to investigate Humberto on Sept. 16. On Sunday, Sept. 15, Humberto weakened to a remnant low pressure area when it hit an area of strong wind shear. The wind shear eased and...

NASA Data obtained from NASA's TRMM satellite was used to create a 3-D image of Tropical Storm Gabrielle's rainfall that clearly showed wind shear pushed all of the storm's the rainfall east of its center. NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite known as "TRMM" flew directly above tropical Storm Gabrielle on September 10, 2013 at 2124 UTC (5:24 p.m. EDT) as the storm approached Bermuda. TRMM's Precipitation Radar (PR) data found that rain was falling at a rate of over...

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the resurrected Tropical Storm Gabrielle in the Atlantic Ocean today, Sept. 10, 2013 and captured infrared data. Meanwhile, one of NASA's Global Hawk unmanned aircraft has set out to investigate the storm and gather data on the storm that reformed south of Bermuda. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the resurrected Tropical Storm Gabrielle on Sept. 10 at 0559 UTC/1:59 a.m. EDT, hours before it regained strength as a tropical storm. The Atmospheric...

[ Watch the Video: NASA’s Global Hawk Aircraft and the Dropsonde System ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of NASA’s Global Hawk unmanned aircraft recently dispersed dropsondes, which are expendable weather reconnaissance devices designed to accurately measure tropical storm conditions as the device falls from an aircraft to the ground. Data from those dropsondes assisted forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) when analyzing the environment of...

[ Watch The Video - Tropical Storm Gabrielle Near Puerto Rico ] NASA One hour before midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Sept. 4, Tropical Depression 7 strengthened into Tropical Storm Gabrielle just 70 miles south of Ponce, Puerto Rico. NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured the development and NASA's GOES Project created an animation that showed the developing storm. Tropical Depression Seven had formed at 5 p.m. EDT on Sept. 4 and just 6 hours later it organized and strengthened into...

Tropical Cyclone 4A formed yesterday, November 10 off the western coast of India in the Arabian Sea, and NASA's infrared imagery captured some high, powerful thunderstorms developing in the storm's center. Tropical Cyclone (TC) 4A formed yesterday around 4 p.m. ET, 380 miles south-southwest of Mumbai, India, with maximum sustained winds near 37 mph. By 10 a.m. ET today, November 10, 4A had moved north about 135 miles. Cyclone 4A was located about 245 miles south-southwest of Mumbai, near 15.2...

By LAUREN KING By Lauren King The Virginian-Pilot Tropical Storm Hanna continued moving closer to the coast and a hurricane watch stretched farther up into North Carolina throughout the day Thursday. The National Hurricane Center said the hurricane watch for Hanna extends as far north as Currituck Beach Light, on the Outer Banks near the North Carolina/Virginia border. A tropical storm warning was issued from the Savannah River up to the North Carolina and Virginia border,...

By Gene Cherry RALEIGH, North Carolina (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Ernesto hit North Carolina near hurricane strength on Thursday, dumping heavy rain on both Carolina states and forecasters warned it could trigger life-threatening floods and tornadoes. The center of Ernesto made landfall at Long Beach, sustaining winds of around 70 miles per hour (113 km per hour), just short of the 74 mph (119 kph) needed for hurricane status, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. On...

By Gene Cherry RALEIGH, North Carolina (Reuters) - Slow-moving Hurricane Ophelia soaked and strafed coastal North Carolina and then took aim at the islands of the Outer Banks off its northern shore on Thursday. Ophelia was the first hurricane to hit the United States since the much more powerful Katrina killed hundreds in the U.S. Gulf Coast and displaced 1 million people in August. Its center was 30 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, at 9 a.m. (1300 GMT), the...
