Mesoscale Atmospheric Processes: Mission
Our mission is to conduct research to understand the physics and dynamics of atmospheric processes through the use of satellite, aircraft and surface-based remote sensing observations and computer-based simulations.

Hurricane Breaking News
- Halong (was 11W - Northwestern Pacific Ocean)
NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission or TRMM Satellite passed over Guam as heavy rain fell over the island while Tropical Storm Halong's center passed just to the north of the island.
- Genevieve (Eastern Pacific Ocean)
The resurrected Tropical Depression Genevieve appears squeezed between three other developing areas of low pressure.
- Hernan (Eastern Pacific Ocean)
Tropical Storm Hernan degenerated into a remnant low pressure area on July 29.
- Matmo (was 10W - Northwest Pacific Ocean)
NASA used data from the TRMM satellite to calculate just how much rain fell over Taiwan.
- TD2 (Atlantic Ocean)
NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured imagery of the Atlantic Ocean's Tropical Depression 2 is it degenerated into a tropical wave on July 23.
- Rammasun (was 09W - Northwestern Pacific Ocean)
TRMM measured up Super Typhoon Rammasun's rainfall rates, rainfall totals, and cloud heights providing a look at the inner workings and aftermath of the storm.
- Wali (Central Pacific)
On July 19, NOAA noted that Wali didn't even make it to the Big Island, but moisture associated with the storm did.
- Neoguri (Northwestern Pacific Ocean)
Super Typhoon Neoguri weakened to a tropical storm when it dropped heavy rainfall over southern Japan during the week of July 7, 2014.
- Fausto (Eastern Pacific)
GOES-West and GPM satellites helped forecasters determine that Fausto is now a remnant area of low pressure in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
- Arthur (Atlantic Ocean)
These two images of the remnants of former Hurricane Arthur were taken by AIRS aboard NASA's Aqua satellite on July 7.
