Cyclone Nargis spirals over the Bay of Bengal between India to the west and Myanmar to the east
02.21.24 - Exploring Past and Future Tropical Cyclones in the Bay of Bengal with NASA High-End Computing
Leveraging NASA High-End Computing resources, a team of NASA and university scientists undertook a study of past and future tropical cyclones in the Bay of Bengal — some of the most devastating natural events on Earth.
Map of potential vorticity at the 850-K potential temperature surface (approximately 30 km above the Earth’s surface) and geopotential height near the tropopause (red contours) on 5 January 2024
02.14.24 - GMAO Science Snapshots Shine Light on El Niño and Sudden Stratospheric Warming
The NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) January 2024 El Niño seasonal forecast predicts a progressive cooling of sea surface temperatures heading into spring and continuing into early autumn while the GMAO numerical weather prediction model depicts a sudden stratospheric warning event in January 2024. GMAO forecasting systems run at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
Six ‘sub-Neptune’ exoplanets in rhythmic orbits around their star
01.16.24 - TESS Researchers Discover Six-Planet System Using New Algorithms
An international group of scientists have recently uncovered a remarkable system of six exoplanets from data collected by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). Their years of planetary detective work—which began with light curve processing on the Pleiades supercomputer at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility—was detailed in a paper published in Nature.
GEOS-Exp 4km model snowfall forecast with 30-hour snowfall total
01.04.24 - GEOS Model Outputs for Early Season Snowfall in the Northeast US
Model outputs from GEOS-FP 12-kilometer (km) and GEOS-Exp 4-km depict an early season snowfall in the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States on December 11, 2023. GEOS models run at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
