Dual Cyclones Hit Australia

Cyclone Trevor (right storm) made landfall on the Cape York Peninsula as a Cat 3 storm on March 20, weakened, and then intensified to a Cat 4 storm before making a second landfall on March 23. At the same time, Cyclone Veronica (left storm) was approaching the Pilbara Coast of Western Australia.

VIIRS and CERES on Suomi-NPP

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) is aboard the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi-NPP) satellite. Another Suomi-NPP sensor is Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System (CERES). Combining CERES and VIIRS data provides information about Earth’s radiated energy.
