Safer navigation means more helicopters saving lives
Helicopter Emergency Services (HEMS) deal with emergency evacuations and inter-hospital transport across Europe. Improved navigation information from EGNOS could mean fewer cancelled flights due to adverse weather. Although most modern helicopters have Instrumental Flight Rules (IFR) capability this is not used because IFR are not adapted to helicopter flight characteristics. As a result almost...

GOES-13 Satellite Eyeing System With a High Risk of Severe Weather
A low pressure area currently over northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin has created conditions that call for a forecast of severe weather in the eastern third of the U.S. today and one area is even labeled "high risk." The GOES-13 Satellite captured a visible image of the system today as daytime heating was boiling up strong and severe thunderstorms. View News Article (2011-04-27)

Imaging The Invisible: A New Look At Space Weather
How is it possible to image tiny particles that are normally invisible? What happens to our planet and its surroundings when huge solar storms collide with Earth's magnetic shield? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed this week during the UK/Ireland National Astronomy Meeting in Dublin. Our Earth is continually buffeted by a stream of energy in the form of electromagnetic... View News Article (2003-03-31)

Predicting Volcanic Eruptions
The weather forecast could help predict volcanic eruptions, according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA). Scientists from UEA`s School of Environmental Sciences found that intense rainfall can trigger volcanic dome collapse - a particular type of eruption that occurs when a build-up of molten rock inside the side of the mountain becomes unstable and collapses releasing lava,...
