The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Aqua satellite captured a false-colour image of the flooding on 21 March, 2019 - the first relatively clear NASA satellite view since Idai hit.

Countdown to calving at Antarctica's Brunt Ice Shelf

Cracks growing across Antarctica's Brunt Ice Shelf are poised to release an iceberg with an area about twice the size of New York City. It is not yet clear how the remaining ice shelf will respond following the break, posing an uncertain future for scientific infrastructure and a human presence on the shelf that was first established in 1955. The image, from the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8, shows the area on 23 January, 2019.
