2 Intensifying Northwestern Pacific Tropical Cyclones Seen By NASA Satellites
2012-08-21 14:48:13

There's double trouble in the northwestern Pacific Ocean in the form of Typhoon Tembin and Tropical Storm Bolaven. NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites teamed up to provide a look at both storms in one view. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument flies onboard NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites and the MODIS instrument on each captured a storm when both satellites flew over them on August 21 after midnight (Eastern Daylight Time). The two MODIS images which featured...

Tropical Storm Kai-tak Headed For Landfall Near Hong Kong Seen By NASA
2012-08-16 08:49:39

Warnings are still in effect in the northern Philippines and now in Hong Kong, as Tropical Storm Kai-tak continues to drop heavy rainfall and move toward a landfall in China. NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared data that shows a large area of strong thunderstorms that make up Kai-tak. NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared data on Kai-tak when it passed overhead on August 15 at 0517 UTC (1:17 a.m. EDT/1:17 p.m. local time, Hong Kong). Forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center...

Typhoon Haikui weakened to a tropical storm just before landfall in China. Eight hours after landfall, NASA's Aqua satellite still showed a strong and organized tropical storm moving inland. China's National Meteorological Center (NMC) said that Tropical Storm Haikui, made landfall in Zhejiang province on August 8 at 3:20 a.m. local time (19:20 UTC or 3:20 p.m. EDT/U.S., August 7), about 140 miles (225 km) south of Shanghai. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center's last official warning on...

Tropical Storm Haikui Closing in on China Seen By NASA
2012-08-08 07:46:15

Tropical Storm Haikui is headed for landfall in southeastern China, and NASA's Aqua satellite caught a stunning image of its size and its ragged, but wide eye when it was a typhoon earlier today, August 7. As a result of interaction with land, Haikui has weakened to a tropical storm. When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Typhoon Haikui on August 6, 2012 at 12:35 a.m. EDT the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument onboard captured an image of the storm as it was...

Typhoon Haikui Approaching China In Visible And Infrared Light Seen By NASA
2012-08-06 18:48:38

Two NASA satellites have captured data on the activity of Typhoon Haikui as it nears the China coast. NASA's Terra satellite provided a visible look at the storm, while NASA's Aqua satellite investigated it in infrared light. Both showed some strong thunderstorms within that were likely packing heavy rainfall. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Typhoon Haikui on August 5. The AIRS instrument captured an infrared image of the cloud temperatures that showed the strongest storms and heaviest...

Typhoon Saola's Huge Reach Over The Philippines Seen By NASA
2012-07-31 08:16:38

Typhoon Saola looks like a monster tropical cyclone in infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite today, July 30. Although Saola's center is over 300 nautical miles (368 miles/592 km) south-southeast of Taiwan, it stretches over the north and central Philippines and has triggered a number of warnings throughout the country. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument on NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of Typhoon Saola approaching Taiwan on July 30 at 0215...

Hot Towers Indicated Typhoon Vicente's Rapid Intensification Sighted By NASA
2012-07-24 12:44:19

Hurricane Season 2012: Typhoon Vicente (Western North Pacific Ocean) Rapid intensification of tropical cyclones is still somewhat of a mystery to forecasters, but one marker that NASA scientists confirmed is when "hot towers" appear within a tropical cyclone as they did in Typhoon Vicente before it exploded in strength on July 23. Vicente made landfall in southern China on July 23. NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite spotted hot towers in Typhoon Vicente, and it...

Fabio's Remnants Fading In Cool Pacific Waters Seen By TRMM
2012-07-20 09:07:56

NASA's TRMM satellite noticed that Fabio's remnants have "chilled out" in very cool waters of the Eastern Pacific, while only dropping light to moderate rains. On July 18, 2012 at 2043 UTC (1:43 p.m. PDT), the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite saw the remnants of what was once Hurricane Fabio southwest of the California coast. Upper level winds were shearing it apart and cool ocean waters with temperatures of about 19 Celsius (66.2 Fahrenheit) near the center of the...

'Guchol' Tiny Typhoon On NASA Satellite Imagery
2012-06-15 08:38:32

Tropical Storm Guchol intensified into a typhoon and is a compact system. It appears as a strong, small typhoon in infrared NASA satellite imagery today. NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Typhoon Guchol on June 13 and 14 and captured an infrared view of the storm's clouds and temperatures. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument that flies on NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared and temperature data on Guchol. When cloud temperatures get colder, it means that clouds are getting...

Typhoon Sanvu Shows Heavy Rainfall On NASA's TRMM Satellite
2012-05-24 12:45:12

Tropical Storm Sanvu strengthened overnight as forecast and is now a Typhoon in the western North Pacific Ocean. NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite observed that most of the rainfall is falling in the eastern half of the storm. The TRMM satellite measured the rainfall from Typhoon Sanvu on May 24, 2012.TRMM's Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) data shows that Sanvu's heaviest rainfall was occurring in its northeastern quadrant where some intense...

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...
