Update 2: Sally – Atlantic Ocean

09.17.2020
NASA satellites provided a look at the rainfall potential in Hurricane Sally before and after it made landfall in southern Alabama. NASA’s Aqua satellite and IMERG analysis were used to analyze the storm’s flooding potential.

Emissions Could Add 15 Inches to 2100 Sea Level Rise, NASA-Led Study Finds

09.17.2020
If greenhouse gas emissions continue apace, Greenland and Antarctica’s ice sheets could together contribute more than 15 inches of global sea level rise by 2100.

Hubble Captures Crisp New Portrait of Jupiter's Storms

09.17.2020
Hubble’s sharp view is giving researchers an updated weather report on the monster planet’s turbulent atmosphere, including a remarkable new storm brewing, and a cousin of the famous Great Red Spot region gearing up to change color – again.

Mercury Concentrations in Yukon River Fish Could Surpass EPA Criterion by 2050

09.16.2020
The concentration of mercury in the fish in Alaska’s Yukon River may exceed the EPA’s human health criterion by 2050 if greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming are not constrained, according to scientific research funded in part by NASA.

Noul – Northwestern Pacific Ocean

09.16.2020
NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite passed over the South China Sea and captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Noul as it continued to organize and intensify.

NASA's Aqua Satellite Continues to Capture Natural Disasters

09.16.2020
NASA's Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of the United States on Sep. 15, 2020, showing the fires in the West, the smoke from those fires drifting over the country, several hurricanes converging from different angles, and Hurricane Sally making landfall.

Where Ice Still Flows into Glacier Bay

An international team of astronomers using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) and retired Spitzer Space Telescope has reported what may be the first intact planet found closely orbiting a white dwarf, the dense leftover of a Sun-like star, only 40% larger than Earth.

NOAA/NASA Sees Dueling Disasters in Wide Angle Satellite Image

09.15.2020
Aerosols are the focus of this image captured on Sep. 14, 2020 by NOAA/NASA's Suomi NPP satellite, but hurricanes also make an appearance around the edges.

Solar Cycle 25 Is Here. NASA, NOAA Scientists Explain What That Means

09.15.2020
Solar Cycle 25 has begun. During a media event on Tuesday, experts from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) discussed their analysis and predictions about the new solar cycle – and how the coming upswing in space weather will impact our lives and technology on Earth, as well as astronauts in space.

How Scientists Around the World Track the Solar Cycle

09.15.2020

NOAA/NASA's Suomi NPP satellite captured two recent images of the United States and both images show that the winds have changed yet again, blowing the smoke from western fires back to the East and crossing the continental U.S.

Teddy – Atlantic Ocean

09.14.2020
NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite provided an infrared image of Tropical Depression 20 in that helped confirm it organized and strengthened into Tropical Storm Teddy.

Vicky – Atlantic Ocean

09.14.2020
NASA’s Aqua satellite analyzed a low-pressure area in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean, and it showed the system becoming more organized. Soon after Aqua passed overhead, the low became Tropical Depression 21. Hours later, the storm strengthened into Tropical Storm Vicky.
