NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided forecasters with a visible image of Typhoon Hagupit in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean that showed the development of an eye as it quickly intensified. Imagery also showed a thick band of thunderstorms that resembled a giant tail, spiraling into the powerful storm.
Plastic from used personal protective equipment (PPE) can, and should, be transformed into renewable liquid fuels - according to a new study, published in the peer-reviewed Taylor & Francis journal Biofuels.
When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the North Atlantic Ocean, it gathered water vapor data on Isaias, while NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided forecasters with a visible image that showed a more organized tropical cyclone.
Scientists have long known the earth cooled dramatically about 13,000 years ago, and the most likely explanation has been that it was caused by a massive object slamming into earth from space or bursting in the atmosphere. But now researchers have reported new evidence for another, more likely explanation - the eruption of a volcano on what is now the European continent, upending thinking about an event that shaped future evolution.
NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided visible imagery of the development and movement of Tropical Storm Isaias is it moved into the eastern Caribbean Sea. NASA's Aqua satellite provided temperature information that gave insight into Isaias' rainmaking potential.
The strong wind shear that weakened Douglas to a tropical storm early on July 29 has further weakened it to a post-tropical low-pressure area. NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared view of those remnants, headed across the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean.
Stars viewed from a place called Dome A in Antarctica can finally be seen without their twinkle -- which means in much greater detail.
NASA's Terra satellite obtained visible imagery of Potential Tropical Cyclone 9 after it moved into the Eastern Caribbean Sea and continued bringing heavy rainfall and gusty winds to the Leeward Islands, the US and British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
Strong wind shear has been the undoing of Tropical Storm Douglas. NASA's Terra satellite provided infrared data revealed the tropical cyclone was devoid of strong storms, indicating wind shear has weakened it.
Former Hurricane Douglas has encountered strong wind shear after passing the Hawaiian Islands and has now weakened to a tropical storm. NASA's Terra satellite provided infrared data to find that the strongest storms were displaced from the center as the storm weakens.
