NASA find Herold a fading ex-tropical cyclone

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Former Tropical Cyclone Herold is now a fading area of low-pressure in the Southern Indian Ocean and NASA’s Aqua satellite provided forecasters with a visible image.

NASA finds little strength left in Tropical Cyclone Herold

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Wind shear pushed former Tropical Cyclone Herold apart and infrared imagery from NASA’s Aqua satellite showed the system with very little strength remaining.

NASA analyzes tropical cyclone Herold’s water vapor concentration

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) When NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over the Southern Indian Ocean on Mar. 18, it gathered water vapor data that showed wind shear was adversely affecting Tropical Cyclone Herold.

NASA’s Terra Satellite observes development of Tropical Storm 22S

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA’s Terra satellite passed over the Southern Indian Ocean and provided forecasters with a visible image of newly formed Tropical Storm 22S, located near northeastern Madagascar.

Meteorologist: The Coronavirus Is Not A Climate Event

As predictable as the morning sunrise, we are hearing that the spread of the Coronavirus is enhanced by “climate change.” No proof of that for one, and secondly, it runs counter to the fact that life THRIVED in warmer times….

Rivers: how they contribute to better understand the Mediterranean Sea dynamics

(CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change) A new study lead by the CMCC Foundation will provide key information to support and improve the operational ocean forecasts released by Copernicus, develop climate scenarios, and in the future support the design of nature-based solutions to improve environmental resilience and reduce hydro-meteorological risks in Europe. Insights and perspectives from a study on Ocean Modelling lead by the CMCC providing a more realistic representation of estuarine dynamics into ocean models.

NASA measures rainfall rates in two American Samoa Tropical Cyclones

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) There are two tropical cyclones affecting American Samoa in the South Pacific Ocean on Feb. 21. Tropical Storm Vicky has triggered warnings, while Tropical Cyclone 18P continues to develop. The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM satellite provided a look at the rainfall rates occurring in both storms.

Humans are a bigger source of climate-altering methane, new studies suggest – Science Magazine

New research suggests ancient methane—like that trapped in an Alaskan lake—won’t flood the atmosphere as the climate warms in the coming decades. Mark Thiessen/National Geographic By Warren CornwallFeb. 20, 2020 , 2:00 PM When it comes to forecasting global warming,…
