(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Arctic sea ice appeared to have reached its yearly lowest extent on Sept. 13, NASA and the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder have reported. Show More Summary
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Former Hurricane Otis was not showing any thunderstorm development or precipitation on satellite imagery on Sept. 19. As a result, the National Hurricane Center declared Otis a remnant low pressure area.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite has revealed that the area of strongest storms within now Tropical Depression Norma has diminished.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite data is enabling forecasters to look inside and outside of powerful Hurricane Maria. A NASA animation of satellite imagery shows Hurricane Maria's first landfall on the island of Dominica...
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Jose has been a named storm for nearly two weeks now as it continues to slowly move northward off the US East Coast east of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. NASA's GPM satellite and NOAA's GOES East satellites have provided a look at the rainfall and movement of this long-lived storm.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Hurricane Jose producing dangerous surf and rip currents along the east Coast of the United States. Satellite imagery shows Jose is now close enough to the coast to also trigger a tropical storm warnings and watches.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA and NOAA satellites have provided data on Maria as it strengthened into a major Hurricane headed toward the Leeward Islands. NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at Maria that showed cooling cloud top temperatures and NOAA's GOES satellite provided an animation of imagery that showed the storm developing and strengthening.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over Tropical Storm Norma when it was just 145 miles south-southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, close enough to create rough ocean conditions and bring rain to Baja California.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Over the course of three days, Otis transitioned from a struggling tropical depression into a powerful hurricane in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured an image of Hurricane Otis, showing a pinhole eye.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of Typhoon Doksuri as it made landfall in eastern Vietnam in the Ha Tinh province.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Infrared imagery provides a look at tropical cyclones at night and NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite got a look at Tropical Storm Norma in the Eastern Pacific using infrared light.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NOAA's GOES East satellite captured a visible image of the latest tropical cyclone to form in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean. Tropical Depression 14E formed, despite battling northerly wind shear.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Satellite imagery showed that Tropical Depression 15E continued to struggle to organize while still being affected by vertical wind shear.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Although Tropical Storm Jose was located off the coast of southeastern US it is stirring up the waters along the US East coast, causing dangerous conditions. NOAA's GOES East satellite saw Jose centered about 360 miles northeast of the southwestern Bahamas on Sept. 15.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Aqua satellite captured in infrared-light image of Hurricane Max that showed the storm weakened quickly as it made landfall in southwestern Mexico. Max quickly degenerated into a large area of low pressure.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA created a dramatic 3-D image of powerful Typhoon Talim using data from the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite. Talim's large eye really made the storm stand out as it moved toward landfall.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Norma is the newest addition to the tropical cyclones in the Eastern Pacific and NASA's Terra satellite caught it after it developed.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NOAA's GOES-West satellite revealed that vertical wind shear is affecting Tropical Depression 15E in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite passed over Typhoon Talim and found a powerful storm with a large, open eye.
