IMPACTS 2022: NASA Planes Fly into Snowstorms to Study Snowfall

What NASA’s IMPACTS mission learns about snowstorms will improve meteorological models and our ability to use satellite data to predict how much snow will fall and where.

Clouds 101

Clouds can tell us a lot about what weather we might expect to see, but they’re actually quite mysterious. The question is: Because clouds are produced by the climate, how will a changing climate impact clouds?
