Tropical cyclones may feed and grow stronger on ocean heat, and a new Google Earth application based on satellite altimetry observations shows where they may find it.
A new study co-authored by JPL's Josh Willis finds the upper layer of Earth's ocean has warmed significantly over the past 16 years, indicating a strong climate change signal.
From approximately 22,236 miles in space, GOES-15 took its first full-disk infrared image of the Earth on April 26, 2010.
The GOES-12 satellite is being moved to cover South America, so GOES-13 goes into service over the Eastern United States.
The GOES-15 (formerly GOES-P satellite) Opens Its "Eyes" and Sees First Image of Earth.
A video showing 10 days of GOES-12 data shows the storms that dumped heavy rainfall on the Northeastern United States in the latter part of March.
Fifty years ago, the world's first weather satellite, TIROS-1, lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Fla., opening a new and exciting dimension in weather forecasting.
According to a pair of new NASA-funded studies, migratory birds experience severe impacts to their habitats and populations from droughts and hurricanes.
El Niño 2009-2010 just keeps hanging in there.
During the first two weeks of February 2010, the GOES-12 weather satellite observed a record setting series of Nor'easter snow storms which blanketed the mid-Atlantic coast in two blizzards.
The northeastern U.S. was subjected to heavy flooding and damage from late winter storms, and GOES-12 captured a movie of those storms as they dumped heavy rainfall between March 8 and 16, 2010.
Twelve days after a flawless launch, NASA and NOAA's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-P reached its proper orbit and was renamed GOES-15.
Dr. Joanne Simpson, one of NASA's leading weather scientists of the past 30 years, and a world-renowned atmospheric scientist, died on Thursday, March 4, 2010.
The latest Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite, or GOES-P, lifted off Thursday aboard a Delta IV rocket at 6:57 p.m. EST from Space Launch Complex 37 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.
Take a behind-the-scenes video tour of some of the critical facilities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, where go or no go decisions are made on the day of the GOES-P weather satellite launch.› View This Video
NASA studies data from three unique weather monitoring tools to help predict how storms evolve.
The GOES-P satellite is now on the launchpad and will launch on March 2.
The GOES-P spacecraft was fueled on Jan. 30 and mated with the Delta IV that will put it in orbit.
"Into the Clean Room" at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla. with Chris Blair and Barbara Lambert. Preparation needed to go in a clean room where satellites like GOES-P are built.
