32. These satellites do much more than keep an eye on storm systems

They are also used to convey an immense amount of data from ground based sensors to monitor in near real time water levels and stream flows of virtually every body of water in the hemisphere, along with soil temp and moisture and other environmental data.

The hurricane images are something everyone appreciates, but there is a lot more going on with NOAA satellites that is of tremendous environmental and economic importance as well.
