Satellite imagery, global weather machine, glacier hazards, inside the jet stream, hotter oceans, fiercer storms, hurricane power, and more, from NOVA

Stuff you gotta see:


  • The Uses of Satellite Imagery

    Images from near-Earth orbit help us with everything from weather forecasting and disaster management to archeology.
  • Global Weather Machine

    What are the primary forces behind what we call weather, and how does El Niño take over the global weather system?
  • Glacier Hazards From Space

    View satellite images of glaciers that have wreaked havoc—or might soon.
  • Inside the Jet Stream

    What exactly is this high, eastward-flowing wind we hear about on weather reports? Find out in this interactive.
  • Hotter Oceans, Fiercer Storms

    In this audio slide show, examine the link between rising sea surface temperature and more intense storms.
  • What Does the Earth Sound Like?

    Twin satellites probing the Earth's radiation belts return the clearest recordings yet of a "chorus" of radio waves.
  • Hurricanes and Climate Change

    Why climate change is making hurricanes more dangerous.
  • Climate Change and Sandy

    A climate scientist suggests that rapid warming in the Arctic helped create October's "superstorm."
  • Hurricane Power

    Your average hurricane releases enough energy to power the world 200 times over. Go figure.
  • Origins: Series Overview

    Journey back to the beginning of everything: the universe, Earth and life itself.
  • The Sun Lab

    Research solar storms using images from NASA telescopes; share your work; and find out about careers in science.
