Satellite finds Tropical Cyclone Joaninha slammed by wind shear

IMAGE: NOAA's NASA-20 satellite passed over Tropical Cyclone Joaninha on March 29 at 5:24 a.m. EDT (0924 UTC) and captured this image of the storm, starting to show effects of wind... view more  Credit: Credit: NOAA/NRL One day makes a big difference when you're a tropical cyclone. On March 28, Tropical Cyclone Joaninha still maintained an eye, and on March 29, once outside winds ramped up,…

Mars’ rivers flowed stronger and more recently than previous estimates

Mars' Rivers Flowed Stronger and More Recently Than Previous Estimates A global survey of Mars by Edwin Kite and colleagues concludes that for a given area, the planet's rivers were wider than those on Earth today. Their intense flow may have also persisted as recently as one billion years ago, the researchers say. These findings suggest that climate-driven precipitation may have taken place on Mars…

NASA’s Aqua Satellite keeps an ‘eye’ on Tropical Cyclone Joaninha

IMAGE: On March 27, 2019, the MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite provided a visible image of Tropical Cyclone Joaninha moving through the central Southern Indian Ocean. Joaninha maintained a 15... view more  Credit: Credit: NASA Worldview, Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Visible imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite showed a visible eye remained in Tropical Cyclone Joaninha is it continued moving through the…

Hubble spots flock of cosmic ducks

This star-studded image shows us a portion of Messier 11, an open star cluster in the southern constellation of Scutum (the Shield). Messier 11 is also known as the Wild Duck Cluster, as its brightest stars form a "V" shape that somewhat resembles a flock of ducks…

Stunning discovery offers glimpse of minutes following ‘dinosaur-killer’ Chicxulub impact

LAWRENCE -- A study to be published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences offers a scientific first: a detailed snapshot of the terrible moments right after the Chicxulub impact -- the most cataclysmic event known to have befallen life on Earth. At a site called Tanis in North Dakota's Hell Creek Formation, a team of paleontologists whose headquarters are at the…

Winds of change…Solar variability weakens the Walker cell

An international team of researchers from United Kingdom, Denmark, and Germany has found robust evidence for signatures of the 11-year sunspot cycle in the tropical Pacific. They analyzed historical time series of pressure, surface winds, and precipitation with specific focus on the Walker Circulation - a vast system of atmospheric flow in the tropical Pacific region that affects patterns of tropical rainfall. They have revealed…
