July 14, 2015 — In the 1960s, NASA launched six satellites to study Earth's atmosphere, magnetosphere and the space between Earth and the moon. Using observations from those satellites, researchers have ... read more

July 13, 2015 — Due to climate change, not only atmospheric, but also oceanic, temperatures are rising. A new study shows that increases in sea surface temperature can contribute to the development of stronger ... read more

July 9, 2015 — Although global concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has continuously increased over the past decade, the mean global surface temperature has not followed the same path. Scientists ... read more

July 8, 2015 — Southern Californians and writers love to blame the hot, dry Santa Ana winds for tense, ugly moods, and the winds have long been associated with destructive wildfires. Now, a new study finds that on ... read more

July 8, 2015 — It is well known that large volcanic eruptions contribute to climate variability. A new study uses new evidence found in both ice cores and corresponding tree rings to show the timing and associated ... read more

July 7, 2015 — Researchers are working to lower the cost of solar energy systems and improve efficiencies in a big way, thanks to a system of small particles. Falling particle receiver technology is expected to ... read more

July 7, 2015 — On Saint Patrick’s Day (17 March) the northern lights danced a lively green jig across the skies of Ireland and Britain. The source of these magnetic storms was not just one but two huge eruptions ... read more

June 29, 2015 — Particulate matter from gasoline engines is harmful to our airways, regardless of whether the engines are a bit older or comply with environmental standards. Fine dust particles allow pathogens to ... read more

June 18, 2015 — High in the sky where the cirrus ice crystal clouds form, jet contrails draw their crisscross patterns. Now researchers have found that these elevated ice cloud trails can influence temperatures on ... read more

New Calculations to Improve Carbon Dioxide Monitoring from Space

June 15, 2015 — How light of different colors is absorbed by carbon dioxide can now be accurately predicted using new calculations developed by a team of scientists. This will help climate scientists studying ... read more

June 11, 2015 — Variations in the amount of oxygen in Earth's atmosphere significantly altered global climate throughout the planet's history. Efforts to reconstruct past climates must include this ... read more

June 9, 2015 — Scientists have peeled back the mysteries of the structures of tiny aerosol particles at the surface of the ocean. The work shows how the particles' chemical composition influences their ... read more

June 9, 2015 — A new study suggests that unusually persistent spatial structures that self-assemble high in the atmosphere serve as "tracer patterns" around which atmospheric rivers grow. Based on ... read more
