Australian Smoke Plume Sets Records

Potent wildfires sent one of the largest plumes of smoke higher into the stratosphere than certain satellites have ever observed.

A Decline in Asian Dust

Changing winds and more vegetation are probably contributing to the trend.

A Dusty Journey

Satellite observations show how far winds normally spread North African dust particles before rain and gravity pull them down to the ocean.

Rains Bring Very Temporary Relief to Australia's Fires

NASA satellite data continues to provide a look at the smoke and aerosols generated by the massive fires in Australia.

Thick Smoke Blankets Southeastern Australia

In this MODIS image taken on January 1, 2020, thick smoke blankets southeastern Australia, including the states of New South Wales and Victoria, from the continuing intense bushfires.

NASA Highlights Solar Mission, Jupiter Cyclone at AGU Meeting

NASA researchers will present new findings on a wide range of Earth and space science topics at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), Dec. 9-13 in San Francisco.

Atmospheric Scientist Sergey Korkin Writes Algorithms to Simulate Instruments Findings

Atmospheric Scientist Sergey Korkin writes algorithms that help scientists understand air quality.

Smoke Blankets Borneo

Fires burning in peat deposits in Indonesia release gases and particles that have consequences for public health and the climate.

Marine Heat Wave Returns to the Northeast Pacific

The warm surface water this summer was caused by an unusual and persistent weather pattern.

Satellite Data Record Shows Climate Change's Impact on Fires

While every fire needs a spark to ignite and fuel to burn, it's the hot and dry conditions in the atmosphere that determine the likelihood of a fire starting, its intensity and the speed at which it spreads. Over the past several decades, as the world has increasingly warmed, so has its potential to burn.

Seasonal Fires are Burning in Angola

Fire season peaks every August in some parts of southern Africa.

Fire Burns in Paraguay, Bolivia, and Brazil

Uptick in Amazon Fire Activity in 2019

Satellites have detected an increase in fire activity early in the 2019 dry season in the southern Amazon

Philippine Airborne Campaign Targets Weather, Climate Science

NASA's P-3 science aircraft soared above the Manila skyline on Monday to begin a nearly two-month-long investigation into how smoke from fires changes clouds, a key factor in improving weather and climate forecasts.

Amazonian Fires Continue Shrouding South America in Smoke

Smoke from the fires raging in in the Amazon basin is clearly visible across much of the center of South America.

Sampling the Castle Fire

Researchers are flying through wildfire smoke to learn about the molecules lingering inside its plume.
