An infrared look by NASA's Terra satellite found powerful storms in the center of Tropical Storm Cimaron that resembled a 'Picasso-like' face as they zig-zagged around the center of circulation.
Hurricane Lane had moved westward into the central Pacific Ocean far southeast of the Hawaiian Islands when NASA's GPM core observatory satellite passed above and looked it the heavy rainfall it was generating. Hurricane Lane may be a threat to portions of the Hawaiian Islands this week.
When NASA's Terra satellite passed over Typhoon Soulik in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean on Aug. 20 water vapor imagery revealed a large, clear eye.
The west coast of the United States is shrouded in smoke from the 110 large fires (this does not include smaller fires within each complex of fires) that have erupted across the region during this fire season.
Climate change and other external forces are causing rapid marine community shifts in Japan's coastal ecosystems. Better understanding of species distribution dynamics, as driven by these factors, can improve conservation efforts and climate change management.
Aerosols are tiny particles that are spewed into the atmosphere by human activities, including burning coal and wood. They have negative effects on air quality -- damaging human health and agricultural productivity. New work from Carnegie's Geeta Persad and Ken Caldeira demonstrates that the impact these fine particles have on the climate varies greatly depending on where they were released.
Scientists investigate the different impacts of northern, tropical and southern volcanic eruptions on the tropical Pacific Sea Surface Temperature(SST). The results are useful for the mitigation and adaptation of climate change after volcanic eruptions and the associated socioeconomic impacts, and can also provide insight for understanding future SST changes induced by large volcanic eruptions.
The fifth tropical cyclone of the North Atlantic Ocean season formed on Aug. 15, 2018, as NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite flew overhead.
Tropical Depression Rumbia, the twenty-first tropical cyclone of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean season formed on Aug. 15, 2018, as NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite flew overhead.
Tropical Depression Hector is being torn apart in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. On Aug. 15, 2018, when NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite flew overhead it captured a visible image of the storm as the final bulletin on the system was issued by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.
