textured dust storms on mars

Astronomers studying Mars first noted the presence of yellow clouds on its surface in the 1870's. Today these windblown dust storms on Mars are well known, and can span local, regional or even global in scale. Storms can display visible structures, sometimes periodic with wavelike features, or in other cases streaky or plume-like. Storms with structures are called "textured dust storms" and they result from strong winds or other meteorological effects that lift dust into the Martian atmosphere. In addition to obscuring views of the Martian surface, the dust can affect atmospheric heating and other climatic processes. These dust storms, despite having been studied for more than a century, remain rather mysterious. It is not understood, for example, how textured storms are distributed over t

new model projects an increase in dust storms in the u.s.

Could the storms that once engulfed the Great Plains in clouds of black dust in the 1930's once again wreak havoc in the U.S.? A new statistical model developed by researchers at Princeton University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that climate change will amplify dust activity in parts of the U.S. in the latter half of the 21st century, which may lead to the increased frequency of spectacular dust storms that have far-reaching impacts on public health and infrastructure.

nasa sees powerful storms with advancing monsoon in bay of bengal

Storms associated with the advancing monsoon in the Northern Indian Ocean's Bay of Bengal were analyzed by NASA with the GPM or Global Precipitation Measurement mission core satellite.The GPM core observatory satellite passed over the Bay of Bengal on May 23, 2017 at 0251 UTC (May 22 at 10:51 p.m. EDT). GPM is a joint satellite mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA.GPM flew almost directly above very strong convective storms that were located east of Sri Lanka. These powerful storms were associated with the approaching Southwest monsoon. The amount and timing of monsoon rainfall is very important to the economy of India. GPM's Microwave Imager or GMI and Dual-Frequency Precipitation Radar or DPR instruments collected data that showed the location and intensi

hurricanes irma and harvey: what to know about storm names

As the United States continues to reel from the effects of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, U.S. meteorologists have turned to monitoring Hurricane Irma, which made landfall in the eastern Caribbean and is barreling towards Florida. Hurricanes are notably unpredictable, but there is at least one thing about the storms that's easy to know in advance — their names.Relatednatural disasterHow Texas Rebuilt After the Deadliest Hurricane in U.S. Historynatural disasterHow Texas Rebuilt After the Deadliest Hurricane in U.S. HistoryThe reason for those names is simple: Human names are easier to remember than numbers or meteorological jargon. These days, the World Meteorological Organization maintains and updates six alphabetically-arranged lists for naming Atlantic tropical storms. Each list has 21 name

atlantic hurricane season could be 'extremely active': noaa

The Atlantic coast of the United States faces an "extremely active" hurricane season this year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said WednesdayThe Atlantic Ocean now faces a higher likelihood of an "extremely active" hurricane season with more storms than previously predicted, US forecasters warned Wednesday, updating the previous outlook issued in May.
Already, six storms large enough to merit their own names have roiled the Atlantic, just one indicator of a stormier than anticipated season ahead, said the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).These six make up "half the number of storms during an average six-month season and double the number of storms that would typically form by early August," said the US government agency in a statement."Th

the 17th big atlantic storm takes shape in busy season

This Atlantic hurricane season was expected to be above average, with 11 to 17 named storms anticipated at the outset, a figure forecasters revised upward to 14-19 in AugustThe 17th storm large enough to earn its own name has formed in the Atlantic Ocean, making Tropical Storm Rina the latest in an already above-average hurricane season, forecasters said Tuesday.
As of 1500 GMT, Rina posed no threat to land, and was churning in the open Atlantic 905 miles (1,455 kilometers) east of Bermuda, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said.With maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kilometers), the storm was headed in a northeasterly direction, moving at a speed of 12 miles per hour (19 kilometers per hour).Rina's pace was expected to pick up throughout the day, the NHC said.This

hurricane season forecast worse than usual, noaa says

National storm forecasters ratcheted up their prediction for a strong hurricane season Wednesday, estimating as many as five major Atlantic hurricanes. The update comes just as the season is reaching its period of peak activity.Forecasters from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) cited a flurry of early season storms, wind and air patterns and high sea-surface temperatures in the Atlantic among the reasons for the heightened forecast. There have been six named Atlantic storms so far this season, double the average number. NOAA now says there is a 60% chance of an above-normal season, compared to the 45% chance the agency predicted in May.Forecasters cannot predict how many, or if any, of the storms will make landfall. But they warned coastal residents in the Southern

the brisbane suburbs hit hardest by storms

A storm swept through parts of Brisbane on Monday morning, as data reveals south-east Brisbane is the most storm-affected region in the state.An upper-level trough currently over parts of south-east Queensland caused “quite a few storms” across the Brisbane area in the early hours, with a focus on the northern suburbs, the Bureau of Meteorology's Chris Joseph said.

north american monsoon storms fewer but more extreme

Monsoon season now brings more extreme wind and rain to central and southwestern Arizona than in the past, according to new research led by the University of Arizona. Although there are now fewer storms, the largest monsoon thunderstorms bring heavier rain and stronger winds than did the monsoon storms of 60 years ago, the scientists report."The monsoon is the main severe weather threat in Arizona. Dust storms, wind, flash flooding, microbursts -- those are the things that are immediate dangers to life and property," said co-author Christopher Castro, a UA associate professor of hydrology and atmospheric sciences. The researchers compared precipitation records from 1950-1970 to those from 1991-2010 for Arizona. The researchers also used those records to verify that their climate model gene

nasa analyzes us midwest heavy rainfall, severe storms

Heavy rain resulted in significant flooding in the U.S. Midwest over the week of July 7 to 14, 2017. Using satellite data, NASA estimated the amount of rain that fell over those areas and used satellite data to create 3-D imagery of severe storms.

we were so wrong about jupiter

NASA has received the first results from its Juno mission to Jupiter, and the findings are surprising. Researchers long held certain assumptions about Jupiter, things that Juno’s early findings have challenged. One of the surprising discoveries were the massive storms on the planet, ones with cyclones as large as our own planet. As well, current measurements indicate that Jupiter’s magnetic field is much stronger than expected.NASA’s Juno mission started in August 2011; the spaceship finally entered Jupiter’s orbit last summer, and now researchers have received the earliest findings. NASA’s Juno program executive Diane Brown said, “It was a long trip to get to Jupiter, but these first results already demonstrate it was well worth the journey.” We’ve seen photos of the stunning storms on Ju

tornado spawning eastern us storms examined by nasa's gpm satellite

On Wednesday May 24, 2017 severe weather affected a large area of the eastern United States. That's when the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite passed over the area and found extremely heavy rainfall and towering clouds in the system. Tornadoes were reported in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Ohio on that day. The National Weather Service noted that rainfall in Tallahassee, Florida set a record at 1.52 inches on May 24.The GPM core observatory satellite flew above a line of tornado spawning storms that were moving through the Florida panhandle on May 24, 2017 at 10:26 a.m. EDT (1426 UTC).
