Behind every weather forecast—from your local, five-day prediction to a late-breaking hurricane track update—are the satellites that make them possible.

NASA Partners with Jane Goodall Institute to Protect Chimpanzees

2.06K Views0 Comments

Data from Landsat satellites, a joint mission of NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey, have been critical to helping the Jane Goodall Institute in their work to protect chimpanzees and their habitat. In this video, Goodall and JGI scientist Lilian Pintea discuss the transformational role of seeing changing habitats from above.

TOPEX/JASON Sees 22-Year Sea Level Rise

1.02K Views0 Comments

This visualization shows total sea level change between 1992 and 2014, based on data collected from the TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, and Jason-2 satellites. Blue regions are where sea level has gone down, and orange/red regions are where sea level has gone up. Since 1992, seas around the world have risen an average of nearly 3 inches. The color range for this visualization is -7 cm to +7 cm (-2.76 inches to +2.76 inches), though measured data extends above and below 7cm(2.76 inches). This particular range was chosen to highlight variations in sea level change. Download the visualization: http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/deta....

Satellite-Based Wildlife-Monitoring Tool for Airports

Using observations from NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) satellite, scientists developed a model of the behavior of carbon in the atmosphere.

Hurricane Forecasts Rely on Modeling the Past

726 Views0 Comments

Improving hurricane forecasts means testing historical storms with today's sophisticated models and supercomputers. NASA and NOAA work together in gathering ground and satellite observations, as well as experimenting with research forecast models. As a result of this collaboration, model resolution has increased, and scientists are discovering more about the processes that occur within these powerful storms. The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission is a joint NASA and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) mission that measures all forms of precipitation around the globe. GPMs Microwave Imager, or GMI, has proven useful in seeing beneath the swirling clouds and into the structure of tropical cyclones. The information gathered by GPM and other missions will be used to improve forecast models.
