APOD: 2013 July 17 - A Waterspout in Florida

A Waterspout in Florida 
Image Credit & Copyright: Joey Mole

Sophie Boutefroy's insight:

Explanation: What's happening over the water? Pictured above is one of the better images yet recorded of a waterspout, a type of tornado that occurs over water. Waterspouts are spinning columns of rising moist air that typically form over warm water. Waterspouts can be as dangerous as tornadoes and can feature wind speeds over 200 kilometers per hour. Some waterspouts form away from thunderstorms and even during relatively fair weather. Waterspouts may be relatively transparent and initially visible only by an unusual pattern they create on the water. The above image was taken earlier this month near Tampa Bay, Florida. The Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida is arguably the most active area in the world for waterspouts, with hundreds forming each year. Some people speculate that waterspouts are responsible for some of the losses recorded in the Bermuda Triangle.

APOD: 2012 November 7 - Video of Superstorm Sandy From Formation to Landfall

Superstorm Sandy From Formation to Landfall
Image Credit: NASA, GOES-13 Satellite


Explanation: It was the largest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean. The cost of its devastation is still unknown. Pictured above is a movie of Superstorm Sandy taken by the Earth-orbiting GOES-13 satellite over eight days in late October as the hurricane formed, gained strength, advanced across the Caribbean, moved up the Atlantic Ocean along the US east coast, made an unusual turn west, made landfall in New Jersey, turned back to the north over Pennsylvania, and then broke up moving north-east over the northern US and Canada. Although Sandy's winds were high and dangerous, perhaps even more damaging was the storm surge of water pushed onto land ahead of Sandy, a surge that flooded many coastal areas, streets, and parts of the New York City subway system. Spanning over 1500 kilometers, US states as far west as Wisconsin experienced parts of the storm. Although Hurricane Sandy might have formed at any almost time, concerns are being raised that large storms like Sandy might become more common if water in the Atlantic continues to edge higher in power-enhancing surface temperature.

Séisme de 6,2 au large du Japon | [Archives] Environnement et océans | Scoop.it

Un tremblement de terre sous-marin d'une magnitude de 6,2 sur l'échelle de Richter a été enregistré mardi à 150 km au large de la côte nord-est du Japon, annonce le centre américain de surveillance géologique USGS.


L'épicentre a été localisé à une profondeur de 9 700 mètres à une centaine de kilomètres en direction est-nord-est de la ville de Miyako, sur l'île principale de Honshu. Le Centre d'alerte aux tsunamis du Pacifique n'a pas émis de bulletin dans l'immédiat. Les médias japonais n'ont rapporté aucun dégât.
