The Most Important Instrument You’ve Never Heard of

For a little-known satellite instrument, the microwave sounder has a major impact on our lives. These instruments feed the weather models that inform our daily forecasts and help us plan for extreme weather. And their long-term temperature records of our atmosphere have played a key role in helping scientists determine that humans ...

Tropical Storm Elsa Over the Caribbean, July 4, 2021

NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP (National Polar-orbiting Partnership) satellite provided forecasters with a visible image of Tropical Storm Elsa on July 4, 2021, when it was affecting Jamaica. In the visible image captured by Suomi NPP’s Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument, Elsa appeared somewhat asymmetrical.

Pathfinder Satellite Paves Way for Constellation of Tropical-storm Observers

To bring more data to forecasters and have a more consistent watch over Earth's tropical belt where these storms form, NASA has launched a test satellite, or pathfinder, ahead of a constellation of six weather satellites called TROPICS (Time-Resolved Observations of Precipitation structure and storm Intensity with a Constellation of Smallsats).
