The goal of the ongoing CyMISS (Tropical Cyclone intensity Measurements from the ISS) project is to acquire image sequences of intense tropical cyclones (TCs), such as hurricanes and typhoons, to support the development of an improved remote sensing method to determine more accurately the strength of these destructive storms using stereoscopy. Funded by CASIS (Center for the Advancement of Science in Space) which manages the ISS US National Laboratory for NASA, this project has amassed a large collection of storm images during the last five years that we wish to share. One of the TCs observed in support of CyMISS by the crew of ISS Expedition 50 in 2017 was the powerful Pacific storm, Tropical Cyclone Debbie, off the coast of Australia.
