The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite 15 (GOES-15) captured this image of one typhoon (Kilo), one hurricane (Jimena), one tropical storm (Ignacio), and one tropical depression (Fourteen E) churning simultaneously in the Pacific Ocean at 15:00 Universal Time on September 2, 2015. All of these storms are tropical cyclones at various stages of maturity. None of the storms currently threaten land.

The Changing Chandeleur Islands

One of the Distributed Active Archive Centers, or DAACs, that process and archive data for NASA Earth science missions, recently posted this tetraptych showing Louisiana's Chandeleur Islands before Hurricane Katrina, after the storm, in August 2010, and in July 2015. Since 2010, the islands have only faced one hurricane, Hurricane Isaac. The lull in storms has allowed the islands to have time to slowly rebuild. The images were captured by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) sensor on the Terra satellite.

【Google 重新發明地址 Plus+Codes 個人精準定位!】感覺有很多的商業應用喔!今年四月, Google 發布了一個 plus+codes 系統(又稱 Open Location Code )
.
例如你正在墾丁某個海灘上的某一個遮陽傘下的地點,你可以用一組英數組合的短碼地址告知朋友,不用形容個半天結果朋友還是搞不清楚你在哪裡。而今天開始, Google 地圖正式支援 plus+code,如果你傳遞這個代碼地址給朋友,朋友就能透過 Google 地圖找到你。
.
如果要傳送地址給國外來訪的朋友,給他們可能無法輸入的中文地址,不如給一段「plus+codes 」,他們就能立刻從 Google 地圖找到我們的正確位置;同樣的當我們要輸入一段日文地址時,如果有「plus+codes 」就簡單得多。
.
除了個人在工作與生活上的地點分享外,一些使用地點作為服務的平台,例如叫車、外送、快遞,也可以使用這個「plus+codes 」地址,讓用戶不用傷腦筋如何回報準確地點,也幫助服務人員找到用戶更精確的所在地。

We found that ice covering Greenland is melting faster than previously thought. The action is happening out of sight, below the surface: https://youtu.be/xkxjyZmdJgg #EarthRightNow

Map of the Week

Only one map really impressed me this week. So no round-up - but, in case you missed it, check out this awesome 3d globe of worldwide trade.
The Globe of Economic Complexity visualizes 15 trillion dollars of world trade on an interactive WebGL 3d globe. Using the globe you can explore the export markets of countries around the world and the international trade of different products. Every pixel on the map represents $100m of exports ...

Hurricane Katrina hit the U.S. Gulf Coast ten years ago. Since then, we’ve made advances in science and computer modeling that have lead to improvements in studying hurricanes: http://go.nasa.gov/1F72M8R
