5 Ways Supercomputing is Key to NASA Mission Success

Whether developing new technologies for landing on other planets, improving air travel here at home, or more realistically simulating global weather and climate, supercomputing is key to the success of NASA missions. These advances and more were on display in the agency’s hybrid exhibit during SC22.

Chasing Faces in the Stratosphere

A pair of NASA scientists have an unconventional hobby—searching through atmospheric data to find the rare moment when faces swirl up in their data.

NASA’s Economic Benefit Reaches All 50 States

NASA released the results of its second agencywide economic impact report on Thursday, demonstrating how its Moon to Mars activities, investments in climate change research and technology, as well as other work generated more than $71.2 billion in total economic output during fiscal year 2021.

Staring Into Ian’s Eye

NASA scientists are studying the latest satellite imagery of the storm and analyzing the forces that made the storm so catastrophic.

GMAO and NCCS Provide Forecasts for 10 NASA Field Campaigns

This year, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) are providing near real-time atmospheric weather and chemistry forecasts for 10 NASA field campaigns — the largest number of supported campaigns since 2017.

NASA and Google Team up to Better Track Local Air Pollution

NASA and Google broadened an existing partnership to help local governments improve their monitoring and prediction of air quality for better decision making.

A Long-lasting Western Heatwave

In early September 2022, a heat dome over the western U.S. brought a long-lasting, record-breaking heatwave that was ultimately cooled by a tropical storm.

A July of Extremes

In the United States, pervasive and persistent heat domes put more than 150 million people under heat warnings and advisories in the month of July.

NASA Study: Climate Patterns Thousands of Miles Away Affect US Bird Migration

In a NASA-led study scientists have linked variability in the yearly timing of bird migrations to large-scale climate patterns originating thousands of miles away.

Heatwaves and Fires Scorch Europe, Africa, and Asia

In summer 2022, multiple heatwaves around the world felled temperature records and fueled wildfires.

Early Season Heat Waves Strike India

The hottest March on record was followed by more waves of oppressive heat in April, leaving more than a billion people sweltering and the monsoon season still weeks away.

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.
