In the winter of 1999-2000, relatively little snow cover blanketed North America, and it melted early. Users can read and view satellite imagery that discusses how NASA's Terra satellite and its Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) were able to record this phenomenon, and how spring snow cover data can be used to predict flood or drought conditions.

Visitors to this site can read and view satellite imagery about the most recent La Nina event, which produced less-than-normal snowfalls in Western North America. A TOPEX/Poseidon image of the Pacific ocean illustrates the warmer water and higher-than-normal sea surface height in the Western Pacific which are characteristic of a La Nina event. A discussion of the uncertainties of long-range climate ... Full description.

Users can view imagery and read about tropical Pacific near-surface currents. The analysis is based on satellite altimeter- and scatterometer-derived sea level wind data. Materials presented here include monthly surface current maps, beginning with October 1992 and ending with the latest available satellite data (usually about one month delay). Links to related sites, a publications list, and a presentations ... Full description.

The deserts of the world today are not the deserts of the planet's past. Fossilized hippopotamus and elephant bones tell us that the Sahara, for instance, was a much moister and more hospitable environment 8,000 years ago than it is now. Each of the Earth's modern deserts are a consequence of one of the following mechanisms: air mass subsidence, rain shadows, distant moisture sources, or cold offshore ... Full description.
