November 22, 2016 For the first time, NOAA and partner scientists have connected the concentration of human-caused carbon dioxide in waters off the U.S. Pacific coast to the dissolving of shells of microscopic marine sea snails called pteropods. Commercially valuable fish such as salmon, sablefish and rock sole make the pteropod a major part of […]
By Kristina Fiore The humpback whale that’s been cruising the Hudson River likely got lost after chasing baitfish, according to NOAA experts. There’s probably not enough food upriver, and chances are the whale is ‘lost,’ said Jennifer Goebel, a spokesperson for NOAA Fisheries Greater Atlantic Region. Show More Summary
Study by three universities, NASA, NOAA and NCAR, points to the prominent role global ocean played in absorbing extra heat from the atmosphere by acting as a "heat sink" as an explanation for the observed decrease in a key indicator of climate change.
What did you do this weekend? Well if you were NASA, you successfully launched NOAA’s brand-spanking new weather satellite GOES-R. Packed with six instruments, this geostationary satellite will be parked over the western US taking all the datas. GOES-R literally has science eyes on the back of its head, with two instruments pointed at the sun, two […]

GOES-R comes equipped with a 16 channel multispectral imager capable of delivering the hottest, high-resolution cloud-on-cloud action. The post NOAA’s Newest Satellite Will Soon Deliver Hi-Res Weather Porn appeared first on WIRED.
The next-generation NOAA satellite series will improve observations of the atmosphere, lightning, space weather, and more. It will help improve weather forecasts in the future.
NOAA's GOES-R weather satellite will soon be launched into space— becoming our nation's most advanced geostationary satellite to date. So what does that mean for you? Here are six reasons to be excited about GOES-R!
After an ironic detour due to Hurricane Matthew, liftoff of the game changing NASA/NOAA next generation GOES-R geostationary weather observation satellite offering a "dramatic leap in capability" is finally on track for this weekend on Nov. 19 from the Florida Space Coast.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Tina was short-lived. NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured the remnants of the storm that formed, reached tropical storm status and fizzled in one day.
