Biomass Mission to Study Earth’s Forests

Set to fly in 2022, ESA’s Biomass Earth Explorer satellite with its 12-meter diameter radar antenna will pierce through woodland canopies to perform a global survey of Earth’s forests—and see how they change over the course of Biomass’ five-year mission. Trees are an integral, much-loved element of our environment; they also hold clues to our

How Does the Amazon Rainforest Cope with Drought?

The Amazon rainforest isn’t necessarily a place that many would associate with a drought, yet prolonged dry spells are projected to become more prevalent and severe because of climate change. The question at hand is how these droughts are going to affect the rainforest, as it has a large influence on global climate and future

Scientists Update World Magnetic Model

Earth’s northern magnetic pole is moving quickly away from the Canadian Arctic toward Siberia. This movement has forced National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) scientists to update the World Magnetic Model (WMM) mid-cycle. Typically, a new and updated version of the WMM is released every five years. With the last release in 2015, the next

Uruguay River Wetlands

The Copernicus Sentinel-2B satellite collected this image of the lower reaches of the brown, sediment-rich Uruguay River where the river forms the border between Argentina and Uruguay, and is the site of the Esteros de Farrapos e Islas del Río Uruguay wetlands. Composed of lagoons, swamps and 24 islets, the Esteros are a haven for

Long-Term Ag Change Impacts Stream Water Quality

In the early 1990s, Acton Lake in southwestern Ohio had a muddy problem. Large amounts of sediment from nearby farms were entering the lake’s watershed. These sediments traveled through streams draining the landscape and were filling up the lake. So the USDA gave local farmers incentives to change some of their farming practices. One of

Oblique Perspective View of Mars’ Korolev Crater

This image from ESA’s Mars Express shows Korolev crater, an 82-kilometer-across feature found in the northern lowlands of Mars. This oblique perspective view was generated using a digital terrain model and Mars Express data. The crater itself is centred at 165° E, 73° N on the martian surface. The image has a resolution of roughly

Visualizing Hydrocarbon Gases Helps Prevent Venting to the Atmosphere

Infrared (IR) thermal imaging cameras have been used for decades for a variety of oil and gas applications, including electrical/mechanical inspections, tank level inspections, and even examinations of pipe integrity within process equipment. In recent years, new optical gas imaging (OGI) technology has been developed that can “see” hydrocarbon gases and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

Jamestown Rediscovery Foundation Using Ground-Penetrating Radar

GSSI, a manufacturer of ground-penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, is continuing its partnership with the Jamestown Rediscovery Foundation. GSSI archaeologists Dan Welch and Peter Leach brought new GPR equipment to remotely sense what lies beneath Jamestown. Jamestown—known for being the first permanent English settlement in the New World—will be commemorating in 2019 the 400th anniversary of

Global Warming Increases Frost Damage on Trees in Central Europe

According to a new Finnish-Chinese study reported in Global Change Biology, global warming increases frost damage on trees in large areas of Central Europe. Late frost damages are economically important in agriculture and forestry. In certain years, they are known to have caused losses amounting to hundreds of millions of euros. Climate change and increasing
