  1. From space, large decks of closely spaced stratocumulus clouds appear like bright cotton balls hovering over the ocean. They cover vast areas—literally thousands of miles of the subtropical oceans—and linger for weeks to months. Because these marine clouds reflect more solar radiation than the surface of the ocean, cooling the Earth's surface, the lifetime of stratocumulus clouds is an important component of the Earth's radiation balance. It is necessary, then, to accurately represent cloud lifetimes in the earth system models (ESM) used to predict future climate conditions. Turbulence—ai
  2. The rate of sea-level rise in the 20th century along much of the U.S. Atlantic coast was the fastest in 2,000 years, and southern New Jersey had the fastest rates, according to a Rutgers-led study. The global rise in sea-level from melting ice and warming oceans from 1900 to 2000 led to a rate that's more than twice the average for the years 0 to 1800—the most significant change, according to the study in the journal Nature Communications. The study for the first time looked at the phenomena that contributed to sea-level change over 2,000 years at six sites along the coast (in Connec
  3. A recent analysis of the latest generation of climate models — known as a CMIP6 — provides a cautionary tale on interpreting climate simulations as scientists develop more sensitive and sophisticated projections of how the Earth will respond to increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Researchers at Princeton University and the University of Miami reported that newer models with a high “climate sensitivity” — meaning they predict much greater global warming from the same levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide as other models — do not provide a plausible scenario of Earth’s fut
  4. The Indian Space Research Organisation opened its space calendar 2021 with the successful launch of PSLV-C51 carrying Amazonia-1 and 18 other satellites on Sunday. PSLV-C51 carrying Amazonia-1, an optical earth observation satellite from Brazil, and 18 other satellites lifted off from the first launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota at 10.24am. Around 17 minutes after lift-off and one minute after the PS4 engine cut-off, PSLV placed its primary payload -- 637kg weighing Amazonia-1 – in a sun synchronous polar orbit. After placing Amazonia-1 in the orbit, the rocket coas
  5. February 18, 2021 Each year more than 180 million tons of dust blow out from North Africa, lofted out of the Sahara Desert by strong seasonal winds. Perhaps most familiar are the huge, showy plumes that advance across the tropical Atlantic Ocean toward the Americas. But the dust goes elsewhere, too—settling back down in other parts of Africa or drifting north toward Europe. A dramatic display of airborne dust particles (above) was observed on February 18, 2021, by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the NOAA-20 spacecraft. The dust appears widespread, but
  6. From earthworms to nematodes, from mites to insect larvae, and fungi to bacteria, there are more than 7,000 types of species in our soils. According to The German Center for Integrative Biodiversity, you can find up to 1.5 kilograms of organisms living under a single square meter. These hidden cities full of thousands of creatures, known as soil organisms, are crucial to creating nutrients from dead plants and animals to keep our soil healthy and grow new plant life. Without healthy nutritious soil, no new life can begin; no plants, no trees, and thus no crops. Without them, our env
  7. Etna produced a very spectacular lava-fountaining eruptive episode, known as paroxysm. Starting from around 5 p.m. local time in the afternoon, the strombolian activity, which had been going on for the past weeks from the New SE crater intensified significantly. Shortly after, a lava overflow was observed from the eastern side of the South East crater. At 16:05 UTC (5:05 p.m. local time), a part of the eastern flank of the cone collapsed into a pyroclastic flow that traveled down the western wall of the Valle del Bove depression. The flow, as hot material was sliding over snow, produced an a
  8. wireless electricity ? 😁 add: maybe out of the scope but i always imagine that electricity could transfer all over the earth using satellite, 😅 this will huge leap for us
  9. can you give us detail, what version of sarscape, and envi you using it?
  10. Google Maps for Android is one of the most actively developed Google apps, with new features and improvements routinely being added to the navigation app. In the last two months alone, the app has gained quite a few functionalities, including a new community feed, a Go tab for accessing frequently visited places, messaging for verified businesses, a new driving mode, and food delivery alerts. The app will also soon start showing COVID-19 vaccine locations in the US. Now the Google Maps on Android is picking up a new split-screen UI that makes it easier to navigate in the Street View mode.
