Satellites See One Fire, Two Plumes

In July 2017, sweltering temperatures and strong winds fueled intense wildfires in southern California. The fires forced thousands of people to flee their homes, charred dozens of structures, closed roads and darkened skies throughout the region with thick smoke.

Antarctic Icebergs Break Free

On April 7, 2016, multiple satellites captured the birth of two large icebergs that were shed along a crack on Antarctica’s Nansen Ice Shelf during persistent strong offshore winds. The icebergs currently pose no threat to shipping, but they may pose a threat to scientific instruments moored to the seafloor to monitor climate change.

March Snowfall across European Alps

The European Alps stretch 1,200 kilometers (750 miles) across eight countries, and it’s the longest mountain chain situated entirely within Europe. The Alps include more than 100 peaks higher than 4,000 meters (13,000 feet), and this image from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on its Terra satellite beautifully captures a recent snowfall across the region.

China’s Forest Recovery Shows Hope for Mitigating Global Climate Change

China's sweeping program to restore forests across the country is working. The vast destruction of China's forests, leveled after decades of logging, floods and conversion to farmland, has become a story of recovery, according to the first independent verification published in today's Science Advances by Michigan State University (MSU) researchers. "It is encouraging that China's

Ohio River Flooding Revealed and Compared

NASA satellite imagery shows that for much of March 2015, the Ohio River watershed was above flood stage, particularly just above the confluence with the Mississippi River. The cause was a combination of melting snow and heavy rainfall.

Saharan Sand Blows Across the North African Coast

Plumes of sand from North African deserts are easily visible in this satellite image captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on NASA’s Aqua satellite in late February 2015. The microscopic particles amass and begin a trans-Atlantic journey to South America.
