Five Questions to Help You Understand Hurricanes and Climate Change

What’s the recipe for hurricane formation, and how is the behavior of these storms changing as Earth’s long-term warming trend continues? NASA research answers these questions to help you understand how excess heat in Earth’s oceans is changing the way hurricanes form and evolve.

Hurricane Agatha Strikes Mexico

In a potent start to the eastern Pacific hurricane season, the May storm brought torrential rain and fierce winds to Mexico’s Pacific Coast.

How Aerosols Helped Untangle Carbon Monoxide Trends

Short-lived aerosols from smoke helped researchers pinpoint some of the key processes drawing levels of carbon monoxide down.

A Global Decline in Carbon Monoxide

The widespread adoption of cleaner-burning technologies and declines in fire activity over the past two decades has drawn down global levels of the pollutant.

JPSS and GOES-R Exhibit Ribbon Cutting

On May 19, 2022, the Goddard Visitor Center held a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new exhibit by the JPSS and GOES-R Series programs. Located on the outer edge of the Rocket Garden, the exhibit features an abstract kinetic sculpture with three mirrored orbs, representing the Sun, Earth and the satellites, that are activated by the wind.

NASA Celebrates Earth Day with Every #NASAEarthling

NASA’s space exploration continues to inspire us to be better stewards of our planet and Earth Day is a great time to celebrate what we’ve done and can do to keep Earth everyone’s favorite planet in the universe.

NASA Invites Media to 59th Annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium

Media are invited to meet leaders in space exploration at the 59th annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium, taking place on the campus of the University of Maryland, College Park, from March 23 to 25. Attendees also have the option to watch the symposium online.

NASA Develops Technology to Dissect the Lower Atmosphere

Studying the lower atmosphere from space is a NASA priority, but there are significant challenges.

NASA-supported Prototype Turns Earth Data into 3D Video Dashboard

NASA field campaigns return vast troves of valuable data. Sometimes, however, processing so much raw information and related satellite imagery can slow the pace of scientific discovery. To combat that lag in output, researchers and programmers have developed a prototype 3D video dashboard for data from field campaigns...

Dust Storm Engulfs Canary Islands

The event, known locally as “la calima,” turned skies orange and degraded air quality in Gran Canaria and neighboring islands.

One Year into the Biden Administration, NASA Looks to Future

Over the past year, NASA has made valuable contributions to Biden-Harris Administration’s goals – leading on the global stage, addressing the urgent issue of climate change, creating high paying jobs, and inspiring future generations.

NASA to Highlight New Science Findings, Missions During AGU Meeting

NASA researchers and colleagues from around the world will present the latest findings on a range of Earth and space science topics at the annual American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting, being held virtually and in New Orleans from Monday, Dec.13, through Friday, Dec. 17.

Mariel Friberg Uses Satellite Data to Study Wildfires

Mariel Friberg works in Goddard's Climate and Radiation Laboratory using satellite data to study new wildfire observations, providing helpful tools for wildfire models.

Vice President Harris to Visit NASA Goddard Today, Deliver Live Remarks

Vice President Kamala Harris will visit NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland today, Nov. 5, to get a firsthand look at the agency’s work to combat the climate crisis and protect vulnerable communities.

NASA Partnership Supports the Next Generation of Space and Science Professionals

NASA's participation in the Mentoring365 program will provide connectivity and access to the next generation of space and science professionals.

Dust Storms in Greenland

Large plumes of dust from the planet’s largest island are most common during the transition from summer to winter.

The Most Important Instrument You’ve Never Heard of

For a little-known satellite instrument, the microwave sounder has a major impact on our lives. These instruments feed the weather models that inform our daily forecasts and help us plan for extreme weather. And their long-term temperature records of our atmosphere have played a key role in helping scientists determine that humans ...

NASA Works to Give Satellite Swarms a Hive Mind

Swarms of small satellites could communicate amongst themselves to collect data on important weather patterns.

NASA’s MISR Instrument Sees California Wildfire Smoke Plumes From Space

Smoke from several large wildfires burning in Northern California can be seen traveling miles into the atmosphere.

NASA Satellites See Upper Atmosphere Cooling and Contracting Due to Climate Change

The sky isn't falling, but scientists have found that parts of the upper atmosphere are gradually contracting in response to rising human-produced greenhouse gas emissions. Combined data from three NASA satellites have produced a long-term record that reveals the mesosphere is cooling and contracting.

NASA Helps Map Impact of COVID-19 Lockdowns on Harmful Air Pollution

For tiny airborne-particle pollution, known as PM 2.5, researchers using NASA data found that variability from meteorology obscured the lockdown signals when observed from space.

Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere

June 20, 2021, marks the summer solstice—the beginning of astronomical summer—in the Northern Hemisphere.

NASA Collaboration Using Harvard Technology Could Advance Earth Science from Orbit

Measuring the polarization of scattered sunlight lets scientists extrapolate what is in the atmosphere.

Impacts to St. Vincent from the La Soufrière Volcano Eruption

In early April, the La Soufrière volcano on the island of Saint Vincent violently erupted - the first major eruption since 1979. Researchers from the NASA Disasters program area, who have been monitoring the volcanic activity on Saint Vincent since January, used satellite data to observe impacts to the island and local communities.
