This composite image uses a number of swaths of the Earth's surface taken on January 4, 2012. The NPP satellite was renamed 'Suomi NPP' on January 24, 2012 to honor the late Verner E. Suomi of the University of Wisconsin.The shoot includes an image of tropical storm Isaac and a NASA composite satellite image of the new record Arctic Sea Ice minimum created from imaging done on Sept. 16, 2012, with a comparison line showing the average minimum over the past 30 years.Also included satellite images from 28th an 29th October 2012 provided by NASA of Hurricane Sandy, pictured off the US east coast as it moves north.
