NASA finds subtropical storm Joyce disorganized, wandering

IMAGE: NASA's Terra satellite captured an infrared image of Subtropical Storm Joyce at 12:40 a.m. EDT (0440 UTC) on Sept. 13. The image revealed that the low-level center is exposed to... view more  Credit: Credit: NASA/NRL Subtropical Storm Joyce seemed dazed by its own formation, wandering in the north central Atlantic Ocean and disorganized. NASA satellite imagery confirmed the lack of organization and patchy development of…

NASA gets inside look at large and powerful Hurricane Florence    

IMAGE: At 2:20 a.m. EDT (0620 UTC) on Sept. 13, 2018 the MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite looked at Hurricane Florence in infrared light. MODIS found a small ring of... view more  Credit: NASA/NRL NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at the large and powerful Hurricane Florence early on Sept. 13 that indicated wind shear was temporarily affecting the southern side of the storm.…

Hubble goes wide to seek out far-flung galaxies

The Optical Society launches global environmental monitoring network

Washington - The Optical Society (OSA) has announced its intent to establish a global network of regional environmental centers aimed at better understanding and forecasting the local impacts of climate change. The Global Environmental Measurement and Monitoring Network project was unveiled by OSA at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. "While climate change is measured on a global level, its impacts will affect…

Dr. Annick Bricaud selected as 2018 recipient of the Jerlov Award

IMAGE: This is Dr. Annick Bricaud. view more  Credit: Dr. Annick Bricaud The Oceanography Society (TOS) congratulates Dr. Annick Bricaud on being selected as the 2018 recipient of the Jerlov Award. The citation for Dr. Bricaud recognizes her groundbreaking contributions to ocean optics, which cover experimental and theoretical studies on seawater optical properties, fieldwork-based bio-optical relationships, and algorithms for deriving biogeochemical products from satellite ocean color.…

Near-infrared laser systems for monitoring forest dynamics from space pass final...

All systems are go for launch in November of NASA's Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) mission, which will use high-resolution laser ranging to study Earth's forests and topography from the International Space Station (ISS). The scientific mission seeks to answer questions about how much deforestation has contributed to atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations and how much carbon forests would absorb in the future. It is led…

Georgia, Washington Students to Speak with Astronauts Aboard Space Station

Students in Georgia and Washington, D.C., will talk live with two NASA astronauts on the International Space Station next week as part of NASA’s Year of Education on Station.

FEFU young scientists are developing new materials for laser equipment

Ceramic heterostructures for optical and microelectronic devices will provide the supremacy in such fields like range findings, optical communications, data laser processing and recording. Work is carrying out under the grant support of the Russian foundation for basic research (RFBR). Young scientists team of Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) led by Denis Kosyanov, senior researcher, School of Natural Science, got RFBR grant funding for developing…

NASA sees Hurricane Helene decoupled by wind shear

IMAGE: NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Hurricane Helene on Sept. 13 at 12:45 a.m. EDT (0445 UTC) and analyzed it in infrared light. Strongest storms with coldest cloud tops appeared in... view more  Credit: Credit: NASA/NRL NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at Helene as it continued tracking toward the Azores Islands in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean. Satellite imagery shows that Helene is decoupled from…
