Every Day is Earth Day at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation

The theme of Earth Day 2022 is “Investing in Earth.” A significant investment in understanding Earth has already been made with the creation of the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in 1990, where every day is Earth Day.

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.

Clouds Do the Darndest Things

A high-pressure region combined with a passing frontal system off the South African coast to create an eye-catching gap in the clouds.

NASA Science Enables First-of-its-Kind Detection of Reduced Human CO2 Emissions

For the first time, researchers have spotted short-term, regional fluctuations in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) due to emissions from human activities.

NCCS User Spotlight: Allison Collow

As part of NASA’s Women’s History Month celebration, this spotlight shines on NCCS user Allison Collow. We follow her career from her college and graduate school years at Rutgers University to her recent work researching aerosols and atmospheric rivers with the Global Modeling Modeling and Assimilation Office and UMBC.

An Atmospheric River of Dust

On March 15, 2022, a plume of Saharan dust was blown out of North Africa and across the Mediterranean into Western Europe. The dust turned skies orange, blanketed cities, impaired air quality, and stained ski slopes.

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.

Using the Power of Global Air Quality Models and NCCS Supercomputing Resources, NYU and NASA Collaborators Create a Novel Index to Communicate Children’s Respiratory Health Risk

New York University and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center researchers collaborated on a study developing a health index using global air quality models and the high-end computing resources of the Discover supercomputer at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS). This index can be used to inform communities, mitigate risk, and improve respirato

Bracing for Batsirai

After being soaked in January by persistent, flooding rainstorms and a tropical storm, citizens of Madagascar are bracing for another potent cyclone.

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...

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.

Southern Hemisphere Scorchers

A summer heatwave knocked out power in Argentina, while heat in Western Australia likely tied the hottest temperature ever measured south of the equator.

NASA Winter Modeling Experiments Push the Boundaries of Simulation to Explore the Earth

NASA High-End Computing resources hosted global storm- and eddy-resolving simulations for Phase II of the international DYAMOND Initiative: DYnamics of the Atmospheric general circulation Modeled On Non-hydrostatic Domains.

Derecho Sweeps Across Midwest

Hurricane-force winds, dust storms, tornadoes, wildfires, snow squalls, heavy rain, and record-breaking heat accompanied an unusual December storm system.

NASA Satellite Data Used to Assess Tornado Damage, Understand Storms

As people across the Midwestern U.S. take stock of the devastation from a trail of tornadoes that blew across the region on Dec. 10, 2021, data and images from Earth-observing satellites show the damage.

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.

6 Things to Know About Supercomputing at NASA

From exploring the solar system and outer space to improving life here on Earth, supercomputing is vital to NASA missions.

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.

Extratropical Cyclones Drench West Coast

One of the most intense extratropical cyclones ever to strike the Pacific Northwest drew an equally historic amount of moisture onshore.

NASA Field Campaigns Resume with GMAO and NCCS Support

After delays due to COVID-19, NASA and partner organizations enthusiastically mounted several field campaigns in spring-summer 2021. Key to campaign success are 12-kilometer-resolution atmospheric forecasts provided by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).

Unusual Snowfall in Greenland

The remnants of Hurricane Larry dropped abundant snowfall on Greenland just as the summer melt season was coming to an end.

Flash Floods from Ida Swamp the Northeast

Many of the worst-hit areas in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York saw 6 to 10 inches of rain fall in just a few hours.
