A Zigzagging Smoke Plume Over Western Australia

In December 2016, shifting winds pushed smoke from a bushfire on the south coast of Western Australia into the shape of the letter Z. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image of the zigzagging smoke plume on the afternoon of December 7, 2016. Red outlines indicate hot...

Smog and Haze in Northern China

Many parts of eastern China were put on orange alert on December 4, 2016, when heavy smog veiled large swaths of the country. The haze stranded passengers at airports in northern China and slowed down city life in Beijing, which reached orange alert level on December 1.

An orange alert signals heavy pollution—a PM2.5 (particulate matter) density of more than...

Growing Pains: Arctic Sea Ice at Record Lows

Every northern fall and winter, cooling ocean and air temperatures cause the floating cap of Arctic sea ice to grow from its annual minimum extent toward a maximum between February and April. So far in 2016, though, the Arctic Ocean and neighboring seas have been slow to freeze, setting both daily and monthly record lows.

“The October freeze-up...

Iberá Wetlands in Sunglint

An astronaut flying over central South America was following the Sun’s reflection point (also known as sunglint) as it flashed across the water surfaces of the Iberá Wetlands. Sunglint makes for startling images that appear more like black-and-white photos. The many bright, irregular, elongated patches (especially on the lower right) are bigger lakes, while the...

Since 1959, with the launch of the first weather satellite, NASA has been studying our home planet on a global scale. NASA monitors Earth's vital signs via satellites and airplanes, field work and computer models, all to understand Earth's climate processes to deal with changes and challenged ahead.

Where the Organ Pipes Grow

Organ pipes dot the desert floor in southern Arizona. These tall, branch-like formations of cacti lend unusual beauty to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, while also sheltering its inhabitants. This federal monument is the only place in the United States with large stands of the organ pipe cactus. They abound on southern-facing slopes, and can live for more than...

From Monterey Bay to outer space?

A team of researchers from NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration and other institutions recently visited choppy waters in Monterey Bay, California, while developing artificial intelligence for submersibles, helping them track signs of life below the waves.

Doing so won’t just benefit our understanding of Earth’s marine environments; the team...

Powerful Earthquake Exposes New Land Near Kaikoura

On November 13, 2016, a powerful earthquake jolted the northeastern coast of New Zealand’s South Island. The 7.8 magnitude quake lifted the seabed by 0.5 to 2 meters (2 to 7 feet) along a 20-kilometer stretch of the Kaikoura coast. In one area, the uplift was a remarkable 5.5 meters (18 feet).

The sudden shifting of such a huge quantity of...

Glow-in-the-Dark Clouds

Strictly speaking, noctilucent or “night shining” clouds don’t glow in the dark the way the bioluminescent algae or fireflies do. Also called polar mesospheric clouds, they float high enough in the atmosphere to capture a little bit of stray sunlight, even after the Sun has fallen below the horizon. In this way, they have more in common with an actor being illuminated...

The Chesapeake Bay Watershed: Still Cloudy, With a Chance of Clearing

It is the largest estuary in the United States and third largest in the world. Once sculpted and changed by ice, water, and powerful geologic forces over tens of millions of years, today's Bay is shaped by human forces as well.

The Pegasus rocket carrying the #CYGNSS spacecraft has been moved to the runway at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, where it will be mated to Orbital ATK's L-1011 aircraft, nicknamed “Stargazer,” for the ferry flight to NASA's Kennedy Space Center.

Launch is set for Dec. 12 of the smallsats. The CYGNSS satellites will make frequent and accurate measurements of ocean surface winds...

A Dry Start to South America’s Wet Season

Even before the 2016 dry season started in South America, a marked deficit in rainfall was apparent across much of the continent. Parts of the Amazon, for example, were already far drier than in 2005 and 2010, the last serious drought years. Now, as the wet season approaches, intense drought still runs deep across the Amazon basin and much of...

Fires Continue to Rage in the Southeast

The Great Smoky Mountains are named for the blue haze that often hangs over the mountains due to volatile chemicals released by pine forests. But in November 2016, the Smokies lived up to their name for a very different reason.

With drought gripping the southeastern U.S., intense and destructive wildfires have raged in North Carolina, Tennessee,...

Rare November Snow in Tokyo

On November 24, 2016, Tokyo received its first November snowfall in more than half a century. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image the same day. The snow fell in and around the Japanese capital, coating the metropolitan area and accumulating along some sidewalks.
