Volcano Monitoring Locating Fires and Thermal Anomalies from Growing Lava Fountains, in Hawaii’s Big

Volcano Monitoring Locating Fires and Thermal Anomalies from Growing Lava Fountains, in Hawaii’s Big Island May 04 The time-series remote-sensing images show that lava flows entering into Kapoho Bay are located by VIIRS Near Real-Time Fires and Thermal Anomalies product (red points) from NASA LANCE FIRMS, with the base map of VIIRS Nighttime imagery (areas in white are covered by lava lights or city lights) via NASA Worldview from May 04 to June 11, 2018. The lowerright photo was taken by Dr. Jean-Paul Vernier on June 11, 2018, in Hawaii’s Big Island. The lava flows make a lot of 3/12/2021 light so that VIIRS can see them at night.

Volcano Monitoring Measurements of thermal energy output from the Fuego volcano eruption in Guatemala

Volcano Monitoring Measurements of thermal energy output from the Fuego volcano eruption in Guatemala Fuego Year The upper-right figure shows a plot of total emitted radiance (at 4 microns) from Fuego observed by MODIS NRT MODVOLC product from 2000 to present. The time-series data appear that the recent Fuego eruption (June 03, 2018) came at the end of a long waxing-then-waning period of thermal output which began in 2015, and peaked sometime late 2017.

Remote Sensing Observations of Super Typhoon Trami and Typhoon Yutu from LANCE NRT VIIRS

Remote Sensing Observations of Super Typhoon Trami and Typhoon Yutu from LANCE NRT VIIRS True Color Product The VIIRS instrument observed the Typhoon Yutu around 1: 30 pm local time from October 23 to 26, 2018. Typhoon Trami Source: Washington Post Typhoon Yutu The VIIRS (Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite) instrument aboard Suomi -NPP observed the Super-Typhoon Trami around 1: 30 pm local time from September 26 to 30, 2018. The VIIRS images revealed a cloud-filled eye. 3/12/2021 LANCE UWG 5

Hurricane Florence 2018 Pre- and Post-Event Assessment of North Carolina’s Energy Sector Using NASA’s

Hurricane Florence 2018 Pre- and Post-Event Assessment of North Carolina’s Energy Sector Using NASA’s Black Marble Product Suite Source: USA Today On September 14, 2018, widespread power failures were reported across the state of North Carolina. In preparations for this event NASA’s Disasters program employed one of its core capabilities, NASA’s Black Marble product suite, to enable immediate access to data documenting disruptions in energy infrastructure and utility services. The pre-event and post-event images in Wilmington, North Carolina are based on the composite Black Marble images between August 10 - September 11, and September 20 2018 from VIIRS. The fine resolution images show artificial lights at night prior to the arrival of Hurricane Florence. The Black Marble Level 3 and HD data are continuously being produced and delivered for the latest day available. 3/12/2021 LANCE UWG 7

LANCE MODIS Near Real-Time Data Detects Flooding from Hurricane Michael Source: newsday 3/12/2021 These maps were created from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Near Real-Time Global (NRT) Flood Mapping product. The red color on the map represents new flood waters from October 13 -15, 2018 in Florida. NASA LANCE provides data to the NRT Global MODIS Flood Mapping initiative, which produces global daily flood water maps at approximately 250 m spatial resolution. LANCE UWG 8
