NOAA's GOES-13 weather satellite has been temporarily replaced with a back-up GOES satellite as engineers work to fix the satellite's issues.
Two hours before Hurricane Isaac made landfall a NASA satellite observed Hot Towers in the storm.
The Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel (HS3) investigation is a five-year mission targeted to enhance our understanding of the processes that underlie hurricane intensity change in the Atlantic Ocean basin.
Over the next few weeks, an ER-2 high altitude research aircraft will take part in the development of two future satellite instruments.
Isaac's track away from the gulf's warmest waters helped to keep it from intensifying rapidly, as Hurricanes Katrina and Rita did in 2005.
NASA has begun its latest hurricane science field campaign by flying an unmanned Global Hawk aircraft over Hurricane Leslie in the Atlantic Ocean during a day-long flight from California to Virginia
With Hurricane Isaac making landfall on the northern Gulf coast almost 7 years to the day that Hurricane Katrina made landfall and in almost the same location in southeastern Louisiana that Katrina did, it is natural to compare the two storms.
HS3, will study hurricanes at the end of the summer, flying two high-altitude, long-duration unmanned aircraft with different instruments over the storms.
NASA's OSTM/Jason-2 satellite collects sea surface height data of all the world's oceans and NOAA's Climate Prediction Center is on an El Nino Watch. See it develop here.
Over the past two weeks, a combination of the southwest monsoon and tropical cyclones passing in the vicinity of the northern Philippines has resulted in massive flooding in and around the Philippine capital.
This NOAA GOES-13 satellite image from August 9 shows some very active tropics with four areas, like a train of storms, that forecasters are watching.
NASA's Hurricane and Severe Storm Sentinel, or HS3, mission will be a complex one for the pilots flying NASA's Global Hawk aircraft from the ground.
NOAA's GOES-13 satellite captured an image of the tropical Atlantic Ocean on August 3 at 7:45 a.m. EDT with three tropical systems.
HS3 is a five-year mission specifically targeted to investigate hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean basin.
NASA selected an ocean wind study proposal led by the University of Michigan for small spaceflight investigations of the Earth system.
Follow NASA satellites and learn how they collect critical data about hurricanes and Earth's atmosphere, land and oceans.
June 20th, 2012 marks 4 years since the start of the Ocean Surface Topography Mission on the Jason-2 satellite (Jason-2).
Beginning this summer, NASA will send "severe storm sentinels" into stormy skies to gather information about hurricane formation and intensity changes.
Two principal researchers on several airborne sensors had more in common than conducting atmospheric research. Gerry and Andy Heymsfield are brothers.
There are three active tropical systems in the Northern Hemisphere spread across three different ocean basins.
