NASA: EO-1 satellite captures floods in Mozambique

After days of torrential rain pushed the lower Limpopo River over its banks in late January 2013, flood water surrounded the city of Xai-Xai in southern Mozambique. The Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite captured this natural-color image on January 31.

NASA Satellites Busy at the Peak of Hurricane Season

During the first two weeks of September, and the peak of the Atlantic Hurricane season, NASA satellites were keeping tabs on a number of tropical systems. NASA’s Aqua, Terra, EO-1 and Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellites provided rainfall rates, cloud height, cloud temperature, sea surface temperatures, and extent of cloud cover throughout the life of all the tropical cyclones.

Since it began erupting on June 12, 2011, emissions from Eritrea’s Nabro Volcano have drifted over much of East Africa and the Middle East.

Ash has displaced residents living near the volcano and disrupted flights in the region. Despite the volcano’s widespread effects, little is known about the eruption. Nabro is located in an isolated region along the border between Eritrea and Ethiopia, and few English-language reports have been published.
