The satellites captured the storm that lifts a 17-foot waves in the Pacific ocean

In the Pacific ocean, the raging storm, which despite its huge size, has no name. It is clearly visible from the orbit of the Earth — shocking picture was captured not one, but two meteorological satellites from different countries. Like hurricanes in the Pacific are not uncommon, however, this phenomenon is particularly impressed scientists, since its power is comparable to the strength of hurricane Florence, which in 2018 fell on the South-Eastern coast and caused damage of more than $ 38 billion.

The First satellite,captured an unnamed hurricane was the Japanese Himawari-8. He looked at the storm from the Western Pacific ocean, while American machine GOES-17, witness for the Aleutian Islands of Alaska in the East. It is noteworthy that the second satellite saw hurricane only when she turned toward North America. It is believed that a winter hurricane of great power in the Pacific arise due to the strong contrast of cold Arctic air and warm air in the tropics. To monitor the satellite imagery available on the website of the Department of regional and mesoscale .

Information on the power of the hurricane has shared the national weather service, which continues despite a temporary decline in the work of the Federal agencies. So, the minimum pressure of the storm amounted to 937 millibars, which is typical of a powerful hurricane. For comparison, the Central pressure Florence was almost the same — 939 millibars. In the North Pacific ocean wave height is 17 meters.

To prevent the destruction of so powerful hurricanes, scientists are trying to predict their occurrence in advance with the help of meteorological satellites. Unfortunately, they are rather cumbersome apparatus, and scientists have long time to do the reduction of their sizes. At the moment it is in the framework . In September we were told the space Agency plans to achieve dimensions of satellites to monitor weather events does not exceed the size of a Shoe box.
