Happy Valentine’s Day! We just had to repost this hugely popular image from our archives: This unique heart-shaped cloud formation off the coast of Florida was captured by a NOAA satellite on the first day of hurricane season, June 1, 2011. http://1.usa.gov/1QzuTT6. #sciencesaveslives #science #nature #NOAA #GOES #satellite @noaasatellites #valentinesday

Happy New Year! NOAA’s GOES-East captured this image of our home at 12:33 a.m. EST on January 1. Our Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) orbit 22,300 miles above the Earth at a speed matching the Earth’s rotation. This allows them to hover continuously over one position on the surface. The satellites, there’s a GOES-West too, provide constant coverage of the western hemisphere and they’re critical tools for identifying severe weather, snow storms, tropical storms, and hurricanes. #science #sciencesaveslives #satellites #space #nature #weather #happynewyear #amazing #environment #climate

The Arctic saw its 2nd warmest year in 2017 according to the Arctic Report Card, a NOAA sponsored, peer-reviewed annual update on how the region is faring environmentally. Included this year are special reports on how warming in the Arctic is affecting valuable fisheries in the eastern Bering Sea, compromising roads, homes, and infrastructure due to thawing permafrost, and threatening high latitudes with frequent wildfires. The Arctic Report Card represents the work of 85 scientists from 12 nations. For more information visit http://bit.ly/2AcEKOq (click our profile link) #science #nature #Arctic #NOAA

Coral reefs are essential to healthy coasts and vibrant economies, playing a critical role in everything from protecting lives and property to supporting thousands of businesses. The total economic value of coral reef services for the U.S.—including fisheries, tourism, and coastal protection—is over $3.4 billion each year. Follow @noaaocean from December 4-8 to learn more about the value and importance of coral reef ecosystems.

Today, November 30, marks the official end of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, which matched NOAA’s seasonal predictions for being extremely active. The season produced 17 named storms of which 10 became hurricanes including 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5) – including the first two major hurricanes to hit the continental U.S. in 12 years.

And we have lift off! NOAA's newest polar-orbiting satellite, #JPSS1, was launched at 1:47 a.m. PST/4:47 a.m. EST from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The advanced instruments aboard this satellite will improve weather forecasting, such as predicting a hurricane’s track, and aid in the recognition of climate patterns that can influence the weather, including El Nino and La Nina. They will also help emergency managers respond to events like wildfires and volcanic eruptions and help communities, recovering from severe storms, with better views of storm damage and show the extent of power outages. Data from this satellite will also be available to aid scientists monitor changes in our environment. For the latest about JPSS-1, visit https://www.nesdis.noaa.gov/JPSS-1 (See our profile link).
