NASA is helping improve the ability of forecasters to predict hurricane intensity by flying missions into and above the hearts of powerful storms.
Jason-3 is a satellite mission that supports scientific, commercial and practical applications related to sea level rise, ocean circulation, and climate change.
This satellite altimetry mission provides sea surface heights for determining ocean circulation, climate change and sea-level rise.
A global effort to monitor air quality is in the works as the US, Korea, and the European Union prepare to launch geostationary satellites capable of monitoring pollutants and other aerosols.
Air quality is a global issue. Currents of air waft gaseous and particulate pollutants from region to region, country to country, and even continent to continent. Emissions from human activities, sunlight, weather, pollution from far away, wildfires, and wind-blown dust can all affect air quality. And it can change from day to day or even hour to hour. Addressing this global issue requires a global effort. And that effort is in the works.
Earth's oceans could be concealing a mystery about climate change. Researchers have recently found evidence of hidden heat hundreds of meters below the ocean's surface.
The ocean covers more than 70% of Earth’s surface. Reaching as far down as 36,000 feet in some places, the waters of our planet occupy a staggering volume.
…enough, it seems, to hide a big mystery.
