NASA Satellite Shows Where Northeast Color Is

October 12th, 2014 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

By request, here is this afternoon’s MODIS pass over the Northeast U.S. showing the regions of most widespread fall color. I have added highways in Google Earth for those who are planning a drive on the Columbus Day holiday (click on image for full size):

    Dear Dr. Roy. I’ve been reading on your website and find your take on global warming to be balanced and reasonable. Thank you. I’ve written a blog post of my own on this issue that may interest you.

    Check out the comments as well.

    Just a thought Dr. Spencer.
    Noting that Dr. Judith Curry has started a sideline weather business, it might be possible for you to do the same.

    Giving visual information from a satellite would be something I am sure many people would pay a nominal fee for and of course NASA would have to get a share. You really would not have much competition, it would be informative, and it would create a greater awareness of what you do.

    Of course I am not aware of all the legal aspects, but it could be a win-win situation. I have printed a copy of the photo of Ireland, WOW.

      The data are freely available to anyone from NASA websites. Regarding interest, several years ago we started a spinoff website from our, called…free with just a few Google ads. There was very little interest.

    Thanks Doc.

    Just got back from recovering a truck in Washington, PA. Most of it was night driving with some of it in rain so I didn’t see any colors. But here in Central Indiana (think I-69 Exit 226 28 mi NNE of Indy) we are on the verge of getting into prime leaf looking time. I would say another week and we’ll be about peak.

    Now not exactly on topic but concerning the harvest here in Indiana and the corn belt in general.

    Just listening to a farm show here in Indiana while driving down the road. They were referring to this years harvest of Corn and Soybeans as a “mega harvest”. I think there is no doubt that at least for the corn belt here in the US it is going to be a super year. Some farmers had to replant early on because of heavy rains and flooding but after that the weather has been very good for those crops. And surprising to me is that the tomato crop was “tremendous”

    Funny that the farm tomatoes were a bumper crop because we gardeners have had a little less luck with ours it seems But I figure that the varieties a lot gardeners plant are the larger slicer types that take longer to mature. Still a lot of green ones still on the vines with the first frost right around the corner for us.

    The peach harvest here in Indiana was rather poor. They’re blaming it on a tough winter we had. I can believe that. When we moved into this house in 2001 a good stand of Ivy was growing up the large Chinese elm in our front yard. The stuff is tough and yet this last winter killed it all.

    Just from what I’m reading it seems that globally that 2014 has been a below average growing year for many places because of shortened growing season. This includes the wheat crops in Canada, Australia, and China from what I’ve been reading. And then of course there is the drought in California. So what’s new? Some places great others not so great or even poor. Seems like a typical year to me though if the solar activity projections are correct we’re probably in for some more cool years.
