NASA Scientists Named AGU 2020 Union Honorees

Nine individuals with NASA affiliations have been named 2020 Union honorees or fellows by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and will receive honors bestowed by AGU for their excellence in scientific research, education, communication, and outreach.

Eclipse 2017 Shines Light on the Sun-Earth Connection

Aug. 21, 2017, marked a unique opportunity for scientists in the contiguous U.S. ??? for the first time in nearly a century, a total solar eclipse would sweep coast to coast, providing scientists under the path of totality with a rare chance to study the Sun and Earth in uncommon ways.

NCCS, CISTO, and Partners Present Advances at Virtual AGU Fall Meeting

Researchers from the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS), its parent Computational Information & Sciences and Technology Office (CISTO), NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and university partner organizations are participating in the Scientific Program at the 2020 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, being held online 1–17 Dec 2020.

Copper River Valley Dust Cloud

Dust storms are relatively common in places like the Sahara Desert, but they also happen at high latitudes in places such as Alaska.

NASA Earth Observatory’s Managing Editor, Mike Carlowicz

Mike Carlowicz is the managing editor of NASA Earth Observatory, which publishes a different image-based story about Earth every day. He is responsible for helping the team find and shape those stories, edit them, and put them together with strong visuals.

A Meeting of Smoke and Storms

Satellites tracked smoke from wildfires as it spanned the continental United States and followed winds around two hurricanes.

Fires Char the Pantanal

Drought-parched wetlands in South America have been burning for weeks.

Historic Fires Devastate the U.S. Pacific Coast

Satellite data is helping scientists size up one of the most intense outbreaks of fire and smoke that Oregon and California have seen in decades.

Watching Thunderstorms March Across Lake Victoria

The lake in eastern Africa is known for its intense nighttime thunderstorms, which are influenced by the lake's location, size, and nearby topography.

Communicating NASA Earth Science With Kevin Ward

Kevin Ward's Earth Observatory team focuses on communicating how NASA uses remote sensing satellites, airborne, and in situ data to look at our planet and learn how the Earth system works.

From Space and in the Air, NASA Tracks California's Wildfires

As California experiences one of the worst wildfire seasons on record, NASA is leveraging its resources to help.

NASA Finds High Aerosol Content Across Siberia

NASA/NOAA's Suomi NPP imaged the fires and smoke across Russia's Siberian province on Aug. 31, 2020 and found massive aerosols coming off the fires and heading high into the atmosphere.

NOAA/NASA's Suomi NPP Satellite Shows Two Views of California's Smoky Skies

NOAA/NASA’s Suomi NPP satellite captured two images that tell the story about the smoke coming off the fires in California.

From Astronomical Observatory to Earth Observatory: Translating Science With Kathryn Hansen

As a science writer for NASA's Earth Observatory, Kathryn Hansen has made a career out of learning new things directly from the experts and then relaying that in a relatable way to others. But initially she wanted to be astronomer, until a summer job in college changed her perspective.

Observing Our Earth Through Visualization With Joshua Stevens

Josh Stevens is a data visualizer, creating imagery from NASA's Earth science data. He pairs geographic analysis with the science of how people see, think, and reason about graphics to communicate about our planet.

A Dust Plume to Remember

While dust routinely blows across the Atlantic Ocean, scientists rarely see plumes as large and dense with particles as the one that darkened Caribbean skies in June 2020.

Volcanic Emissions Can Change Clouds

The volcanoes of the remote South Sandwich Islands make an ideal natural laboratory for studying how airborne particles alter clouds.

Dust Traverses the Atlantic Ocean

A tremendous plume of dust from North Africa drifts toward the Caribbean and contiguous United States.

Cloud Changes in Busy Ship Corridors

Ship emissions in the southeast Atlantic help create more reflective clouds that produce a local cooling effect.

Space Apps COVID-19 Hackathon Brings 15,000 Together Worldwide

Poetry. Mobile apps to promote mental health. Rooftop gardening solutions. Drone delivery for food. These are just some of the projects participants dreamed up in the NASA Space Apps COVID-19 Challenge, a virtual global hackathon aimed at innovations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tiny NASA Satellite Captures First Image of Clouds and Aerosols

The Hyper-Angular Rainbow Polarimeter (HARP) CubeSat achieved “first light” on April 17, 2020. The tiny satellite sent back its very first image over Europe with bright splashes of colors labeling clouds and aerosols, tiny particles in the atmosphere.

NASA Funds Four Research Projects on COVID-19 Impacts

Through its Rapid Response and Novel Research in Earth Science (RRNES) initiative, NASA is providing funding for selected, rapid-turnaround projects that make innovative use of satellite data and other NASA resources to address the different environmental, economic and societal impacts of the pandemic.

Airborne Particle Levels Plummet in Northern India

Satellite data show that aerosol levels have dropped significantly since the COVID-19 lockdown began.
