Climate breaks multiple records in 2016, with global impacts
Posted on March 21, 2017 WMO issues annual statement on the State of the Global Climate ahead of World Meteorological Day on 23 March, noting that 2016's extreme weather and climate conditions have continued into 2017.
Carbon dioxide levels rose at record pace for 2nd straight year
Posted on March 13, 2017 Carbon dioxide levels measured at NOAA’s Mauna Loa Baseline Atmospheric Observatory rose by 3 parts per million to 405.1 parts per million (ppm) in 2016, an increase that matched the record jump observed in 2015.

As climate changes, NYC prepares for massive floods
Posted on February 2, 2017 Rising sea levels threaten the coastal U.S., low-lying but densely populated regions like New York City are rethinking their approach to the built environment. A new National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration report warns that in the worst cases, parts of America could experience sea-level rises of as much as eight feet by 2100.

NOAA’s GOES-16 satellite sends first images of Earth
Posted on January 26, 2017 GOES-16 weather satellite releases first pictures with four times the resolution of existing GOES spacecraft. The higher resolution will allow forecasters to pinpoint the location of severe weather with greater accuracy.

On the use of Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites for studying fast-evolving atmospheric and climate
Posted on December 13, 2016 Most of the advanced remote sensing instruments (e.g., radar, lidar, microwave imager/sounder, hyper-spectral radiometers) are placed on Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites. Their revisit time of a specific location on Earth is about 2 -12 hrs. As such, it is difficult to use LEO satellites to monitor or study a fast-evolving phenomenon such as severe storms. On the other hand, geostationary satellites (GEO) can easily capture these fast processes but lack advanced instruments (e.g., no microwave sensors, nor radar or lidar). In this short talk, I will discuss possibly solutions and propose ways to use existing LEOs for studying fast-evolving processes in atmospheric and climate sciences.
