NASA Goes on Top of the Smokies, All Covered in Light Rain
Apr 24, 2012 17:11 PM E
If you walk into a cloud at the top of a mountain with a cup to slake your thirst, it might take a while for your cup to fill. The tiny, barely-there droplets are difficult to see, and for scientists they, along with rain and snow, are among the hardest variables to measure in Earth Science, says Ana Barros, professor of engineering at Duke University.

NASA Satellite Movie Shows Great Plains Tornado Outbreak from Space
Apr 18, 2012 06:43 AM E
Satellite data gives forecasters a leg up on severe weather. NASA has just released an animation of visible and infrared satellite data showing the development and movement of the Great Plains tornado outbreak, using data from NOAA's GOES-13 satellite. There were more than 135 reports of tornadoes and 124 different warnings over April 14-15, 2012.

“Irene” Retired from List of Atlantic Basin Storm Names
Apr 16, 2012 06:48 AM E
Irene has been retired from the official list of Atlantic Basin tropical storm names by the World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) hurricane committee because of the fatalities and damage it caused in August 2011 and will be replaced by Irma.

Teamwork: IBEX and TWINS Observe a Solar Storm
Apr 13, 2012 10:23 AM E
On April 5, 2010, the sun spewed a two million-mile-per-hour stream of charged particles toward the invisible magnetic fields surrounding Earth, known as the magnetosphere. As the particles interacted with the magnetic fields, the incoming stream of energy caused stormy conditions near Earth. Some scientists believe that it was this solar storm tha...

Do Solar Storms Cause Heat Waves on Earth?
Apr 13, 2012 06:59 AM E
Although solar flares, and associated coronal mass ejections, can bombard Earth's outermost atmosphere with tremendous amounts of energy, most of that energy is reflected back into space by the Earth's magnetic field. Because the energy does not reach our planet's surface, it has no measurable influence on surface temperature.

Restoring Flood Plains, Creating Cash Crop, Growing Biomass Are Goals of New MU Study
Apr 10, 2012 16:01 PM E
Storm water runoff is key to any developer's request when creating new roads or other impervious surfaces. Yet, storm water runoff can carry sediment, fertilizers and other chemicals directly into a stream or creek, potentially harming the waterway for years. Now, using 777 willow trees, a University of Missouri research team is beginning a tw...

Dust Storm in the Taklimakan Desert
Apr 07, 2012 11:03 AM E
Dust storms continued in the Taklimakan Desert in western China through early April 2012. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image on April 5. Dust was thickest along the desert's southern margin.
TRMM Image of Rainfall in Tornadic Texas Storms
NASA's TRMM Satellite Sees Tornadic Texas Storms in 3-D
Apr 07, 2012 08:07 AM E
NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite provides a look at thunderstorms in three dimensions and shows scientists the heights of the thunderclouds and the rainfall rates coming from them, both of which indicate severity.
GOES Satellite Movie Tracked Tornadic Texas Trouble
Apr 05, 2012 10:46 AM E
A powerful weather system moved through eastern Texas and dropped at least 15 tornadoes in the Dallas suburbs. NASA created an animation of data from NOAA's GOES-13 satellite that shows the frontal system moving through the region yesterday.
