Fermi's GBM saw a fading X-ray flash at nearly the same moment LIGO detected gravitational waves from a black hole merger in 2015. This movie shows how scientists can narrow down the location of the LIGO source on the assumption that the burst is connected to it. In this case, the LIGO search area is reduced by two-thirds. Greater improvements are possible in future detections.

NASA scientists used almost 30 years of data from the NASA/USGS Landsat satellites to track changes in vegetation in Alaska and Canada.  Of the more than 4 million square miles, 30% had increases in vegetation (greening) while only 3% had decreases (browning).

LEAD: A network of Earth-observing satellites is helping to track crop growing conditions around the world.  

1. Rainfall, shown here as radar-like moving bands of reds and yellows, can now be tracked every 30 minutes across most of the earth. 

2. The base maps of the continents change color indicating the available moisture (water) in the surface soils for growing crops.  

3. This information is especially helpful to farmers waiting for the summer monsoon rain in countries such as India that only have limited number of weather stations.

LEAD: NASA researchers are making the first detailed measurements of changes along Greenland's 27,000 mile-long coastal fiords and the outlet glaciers to see how Greenland ice is melting from the bottom up.   1. Relative warm ocean currents flowing into the fiords are melting the bottoms of some of the glaciers.      2. Accurate maps of the sea floor, ocean temperatures and salinity data will help scientists make better estimates of just how much melting is taking place along the coast.    TAG: This specific mission will last 5 years and will lead to improved climate models about sea level rise around the world.   12234   NASA On Air: NASA Mission Explores Melting Of Greenland's Fjords And Glaciers (4/29/2016)

This short video outlines the MMS mission and its first results. Since it launched, MMS has made more than 4,000 trips through the magnetic boundaries around Earth, each time gathering information about the way the magnetic fields and particles move. A surprising result was that at the moment of interconnection between the sun’s magnetic field lines and those of Earth the crescents turned abruptly so that the electrons flowed along the field lines. By watching these electron tracers, MMS made the first observation of the predicted breaking and interconnection of magnetic fields in space.

LEAD: NASA Scientists and engineers at Langley Research center have developed quick methods of detecting severe thunderstorms from satellite measurements.   1. These storms often have a signature cauliflower shape- the overshooting top- that indicates powerful updrafts associated with generating hazardous weather such as damaging winds, hail, or tornadoes.  2. This example shows NASA forecast computer quickly detecting the 'overshooting tops' by measuring reflected sunlight and cloud top temperatures. This information will be especially useful for aircraft pilots over oceans and forecasters in developing countries where there are no Doppler radar systems.  TAG: The new weather satellite, GOES-R, to be launched by NASA, in October 2016 will help forecasters utilized this method to deliver more accurate severe weather forecasts. This method was designed for GOES-R but it can operate on any satellite measurement across the globe.   12240   NASA On Air: NASA Tracks Overshooting Tops Of Thunderstorms (5/5/2016)

LEAD: A project using NASA/USGS satellite and citizen science has resulted in new pop-up wetlands for shorebirds.    1. An 11-year satellite database helps predict where surface water (ponds) is located through-out the year.     2. Ponds are needed for rest and food by the millions of shorebirds that migrate northward along the Pacific flyway each spring.   3. Matching the water availability with the number of birds arriving makes it possible for farmers to flood unused rice fields and provide temporary wetlands to aid birds precisely when the birds migrate.   TAG: The program, called Bird Returns, is a project of The Nature Conservancy and has produced over 20,000 acres of temporary wetlands in California in the last two years.   12256   NASA On Air: NASA Satellites Help Feed Migrating Birds (5/13/2016)
LEAD: NASA scientists are developing new ways to map and forecast the ash plumes from volcano eruptions and redirect aircraft from dangerous plumes.  1. The small volcanic ash particles are especially dangerous to the jet engines of airplanes.  2. Because only volcanic clouds contain significant abundances of SO2 (sulfur dioxide) the Suomi NPP satellite (launched in 2011) is able to track the volcanic plumes.  3. The high-resolution vertical profiles will allow more accurate forecasts and help reduce airline cancellations and re-routing costs.  TAG: This capability of three-dimensional mapping of a moving volcanic cloud has never been done before.   12257   NASA On Air: NASA Scientists Helping To Track Dangerous Volcanic Ash Plumes (5/17/2016)

LEAD: NASA's latest precipitation satellite, the Global Precipitation Measurement, or GPM, is measuring the size and distribution of raindrops in storms around the world.    1. A dual-frequency precipitation radar and a microwave imager scan storm clouds from the GPM satellite, 250 miles above the earth.    2. The smallest rain droplets, indicated here in blue, are about half a millimeter in diameter, or two one-hundredths of an inch across. The updrafts in clouds blow these lightweight drops to the upper regions of the storm clouds.    3. The heavier large rain droplets, indicated here in orange, fall to the lower regions of the clouds.These droplets are about 5 millimeters or about 3/16 inches in diameter.     TAG: The raindrop size and distribution is one of many factors that determine how much rain a storm will produce.   12261   NASA On Air: NASA Measures Rain Drop Size From GPM Satellite (5/19/2016)

LEAD: Bonnie, the second tropical storm of the 2016 season, drenched parts of the Atlantic coast from Georgia to Rhode Island with up to 8 inches this past Memorial Day weekend. What’s ahead for the hurricane season of 2016?  1. Over the past 10 years there have been 69 Atlantic hurricanes but during that time no hurricanes of Category 3 or higher have hit the U.S. coastline. Such a string of lucky years is likely to happen only once in 270 years, according to a NASA study.  2. Storms less than Category 3, such as Sandy in 2012, can still be dangerous.  3. But what about this upcoming hurricane season? Statistical analysis indicates that for any given year there is a 40% chance of a Category 3 or higher hurricane landing across the U.S. coastline.  TAG: But remember it only takes one storm in your area. Be prepared this summer.   12269   NASA On Air: Ten-Year Gap In Major Hurricanes Continues For U.S. (5/31/2016)
LEAD: NASA is on a mission to probe the lifecycle of plankton, especially the effects on clouds and climate.  1: Plankton are the tiniest of sea creatures, but when they multiply in what's called a 'bloom' they can be seen from space.   2: Using satellites, planes and ships NASA's 5-year mission will explore the complete life cycle of plankton.   3: Of special interest is how plankton help produce minute particles in the air that initiate  cloud formation.  TAG: The indirect effects of tiny particles on clouds are the single largest uncertainty in current estimates of climate change warming models.   12270   NASA On Air: NASA Probes Lifecycle Of Plankton (5/31/2016)

SDO Watches Twisting Solar Material   Solar material twists above the sun’s surface in this close-up captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory on June 7-8, 2016, showcasing the turbulence caused by combative magnetic forces on the sun.  This spinning cloud of solar material is part of a dark filament angling down from the upper left of the frame. Filaments are long, unstable clouds of solar material suspended above the sun’s surface by magnetic forces. SDO captured this video in wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light, which is typically invisible to our eyes, but is colorized here in red for easy viewing.
