Ocean Color in the Gulf of Alaska, 7 January 2007

Ocean Color in the Gulf of Alaska, 7 January 2007

The winter-white Alaska shoreline provides a vivid contrast to the turquoise swirls in the black waters of the Gulf of Alaska. This burst of color in an otherwise black-and-white scene is caused by sediment, ground into fine powder by mountain glaciers and carried into the Gulf of Alaska through many waterways. The largest contributor of sediment shown in this photo-like image is the Copper Riv...

Flooding on the Lena River, May 2007

Flooding on the Lena River, May 2007

In the span of three weeks, spring crept over the Siberian landscape surrounding the northern half of the Lena River. Many of the rivers in Earth’s temperate zones run high in the spring when melting snow and spring rain flood river basins. On the Lena River, however, spring flooding is almost inevitable for another reason: ice. Like other north-flowing rivers, the upper reaches of the Lena mel...

Dust Plume off the Coast of Northern Africa, 9 June 2007

Dust Plume off the Coast of Northern Africa, 9 June 2007

Dust blew off the African coast and over the Mediterranean Sea on June 9, 2007. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image the same day. In this image, the opaque tan dust plume billows off the coast, along the Libya-Egypt border, in a shape vaguely resembling a giant inverted teardrop.

Hurricane Flossie, 13 August 2007

Hurricane Flossie, 13 August 2007

Hurricane Flossie built itself up into a powerful Category 4 hurricane as it traveled through the central Pacific Ocean in mid-August. By August 13, it had weakened to a Category 3 storm, and as of the morning of August 14, the hurricane was predicted to pass within 100 miles of the Hawaiian Islands, bringing strong winds and heavy rain, particularly to the southern end of the Big Island. A hur...

Typhoon Usagi, 2 August 2007

Typhoon Usagi, 2 August 2007

Just weeks after taking a beating from Typhoon Man-Yi in mid-July 2007, Japan’s southern islands were visited by Typhoon Usagi in early August. Although not as strong as Man-Yi, Usagi still forced the region to cancel air traffic and ferry services, and it left tens of thousand of homes without power, said news reports.

Hurricane Cosme, 16 July 2007

Hurricane Cosme, 16 July 2007

Hurricane Cosme was the third named storm in the 2007 eastern Pacific hurricane season. Cosme formed in a common area for hurricanes to start—off the Pacific coast of Mexico—and it tracked north and west. Cosme built power from its initial Tropical Depression state on July 14 to a minimal Category 1 hurricane on July 16.

At 10:45 a.m. local time (19:45 UTC) on July 16, 2007, whe...

Floods in Kansas and Missouri, May-July 2007

Floods in Kansas and Missouri, May-July 2007

Floods that started with heavy rain on June 26, 2007, still surrounded parts of Coffeyville, Kansas, on July 9, when the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) flying on NASA’s Terra satellite captured the top image. Coffeyville was flooded on July 1, when the swollen Verdigris River burst through a levee. Water swamped neighborhoods and businesses, including the...

Fires and Deforestation in the Amazon, 12 August 2007

Fires and Deforestation in the Amazon, 12 August 2007

Like the forests of eastern North America in previous centuries, the Amazon Rainforest of South America is rapidly falling as people colonize and develop a new frontier. Where there was once no such thing as an “Amazon fire season,” fires are now widespread in the dry season as people clear forest or manage already cleared plots of crop or grazing land.

Haze over the Mid-Atlantic States, 25 August 2007

Haze dulled this picture of the mid-Atlantic states, taken on August 25, 2007, by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite. In this image, a wide band of haze hangs over the eastern seaboard and the Atlantic, with clouds floating overhead.

Europa Overlay

Europa Overlay

Europa [yur-ROH-pah] is a unique moon of Jupiter that has fascinated scientists for hundreds of years. Its surface is among the brightest in the solar system, a consequence of sunlight reflecting off a relatively young icy crust. Its face is also among the smoothest, lacking the heavily cratered appearance characteristic of Callisto and Ganymede. Lines and cracks wrap the exterior as if a child...

Ganymede Overlay

Ganymede Overlay

Ganymede [GAN-ee-meed] is the largest moon of Jupiter and is the largest in our solar system with a diameter of 5,262 km (3,280 miles). If Ganymede orbited the Sun instead of Jupiter it could be classified as a planet. Like Callisto, Ganymede is most likely composed of a rocky core with a water/ice mantle and a crust of rock and ice. Its low density of 1.94 gm/cm3, indicates that the core takes...

An overlay of Jupiter's moon Callisto:
Callisto [kah-LISS-toe] is the second largest moon of Jupiter, the third largest in the solar system, and is about the same size as Mercury. It orbits just beyond Jupiter's main radiation belt. Callisto is the most heavily cratered satellite in the solar system. Its crust is very ancient and dates back 4 billion years, just shortly after the solar s...
