Adriane Carr circulated an e-mail today reacting to the latest NOAA data. I think she needs to revise the pitch. She wrote: "Scientists have marked that wide red line in a band from 425-450 ppm, which is anticipated to be exceeded within a few short decades." Frankly, this is incorrect. Show More Summary
Once NOAA realized conditions were ripe for severe weather they put their satellites on overdrive. They beamed back amazing images.
NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible-light image that provided a detailed look at the supercell thunderstorm. NOAA's GOES-13 satellite provided continuously updated satellite imagery depicting the storm's movement. After the tornado,...Show More Summary
The National Weather Service is feeling the effects of automatic budget cuts but says it was still able to give ample warning of Monday’s deadly tornado in Oklahoma. The agency says it issued a tornado warning 16 minutes before Monday’s massive twister developed in Moore, giving thousands of residents time to take shelter even as [...]
NOAA presented to the U.S. Coast Guard today a new report that finds that 36 sunken vessels scattered across the U.S. seafloor could pose an oil pollution threat
Report identifies 36 shipwrecks that pose a "worst case" oil pollution threat to the U.S. coast.
In light of the killer tornado that decimated entire communities in Oklahoma, we offer these tornado safety tips from NOAA. There is no such thing as guaranteed safety inside a tornado. Freak accidents happen; and the most violent tornadoes can level and blow away almost any house and its occupants. Extremely violent EF5 tornadoes are very [...]
New NOAA report presented to the US Coast Guard examines national oil pollution threat from shipwrecks in US waters. The report finds that 36 sunken vessels scattered across the U.
NOAA presented to the U.S. Coast Guard a new report that finds that 36 sunken vessels scattered across the U.S. seafloor could pose an oil pollution threat to the nation's coastal marine resources. Of those, 17 were recommended for further assessment and potential removal of both fuel oil and oil cargo.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced last week that carbon dioxide concentrations at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii surpassed the milestone 400 parts per million for a sustained period.
NASA's Aqua satellite and NOAA's GOES-15 satellite captured imagery of the Eastern Pacific Ocean's first named tropical storm, Alvin. Aqua and GOES-15 provided imagery of Alvin that provided a look at the overall storm and the temperatures of its cloud tops. read more
The 6,000-meter-rated remotely operated vehicle (ROV) system will be tested from 'Okeanos Explorer' in the 2013 field season. Dave Lovalvo, project manager for
Via Climate Progress: NOAA reported Friday that the daily mean concentration of CO2 in the air around Mauna Loa, Hawaii, surpassed 400 parts per million this week The difference between 399 parts per million of carbon dioxide and 400 ppm isn't much, but new data from NOAA shows that that threshold has now been crossed. Show More Summary
Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations have been closely monitored for some time now. Just last month it was predicted that if we did not break through the 400 parts per million (ppm) barrier this May, it would happen next year, according to the longest continuous record of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.

On May 9 CO2 reached 400 ppm at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) monitoring centre at Muana Loa and at at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, California. This is what’s been happening over the last [...]
Carbon Dioxide Passes 400 PPM Milestone, NOAA Finds (via Climate Central) By Andrew Freedman Follow @afreedma On May 9, the amount of carbon dioxide in the air exceeded 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time in the observational record since 1958, and very likely for the first time in at least 800,000 years, [...]
On May 9, the daily mean concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of Mauna Loa, Hawaii, surpassed 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time since measurements began in 1958. Independent measurements made by both NOAA and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography have been approaching this level during the past week. Show More Summary
On May 3, 2013, the NOAA GOES infrared and visible imagery were combined to create an animation that showed the plume of smoke from the fire. The smoke plume is seen blowing west and out over the eastern Pacific Ocean. The animation runs 17 seconds and shows the smoke plume from May 3 at 1415 to 2000 UTC (10:15 a.m. Show More Summary
In a blow to those that want to link severe weather with climate change, a new record low has been set according to NOAA data. Essay by Harold Brooks, NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory The 12-month period from May 2012 … Continue reading ?
