Sister Satellites, Briefly Separated, Working Together Again

CloudSat and CALIPSO, designed to complement each other in the 1990s, were launched together on the same rocket in 2006. Then they spent more than 10 years orbiting Earth in formation with a coterie of other satellites in what’s known as the A-Train (afternoon constellation). Flying together enables the A Train satellites to gather diverse

GRACE-FO Satellite Switching to Backup Instrument Processing Unit

The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On (GRACE-FO) mission team plans to switch to a backup system in the Microwave Instrument (MWI) on one of the twin spacecraft. Following the switch-over, GRACE-FO is expected to quickly resume science data collection. A month after launching in May 2018, GRACE-FO produced its first preliminary gravity field map.

Wetlands Are Key for Accurate Greenhouse Gas Measurements in Arctic

The Arctic is rapidly warming, with stronger effects than observed elsewhere in the world. The Arctic regions are particularly important with respect to climate change, as permafrost soils store huge amounts of the Earth’s soil carbon (C). Warming of Arctic soils and thawing of permafrost can have substantial consequences for the global climate, as the

European Heatwave Made ‘Twice as Likely by Climate Change’

The unprecedented temperatures seen over summer 2018 are a sign of things to come—and a direct result of climate change, according to new Oxford University research. In a newly published report, researchers from the Environmental Change Institute (ECI) at the School of Geography and Environment, Oxford University, who worked in collaboration with the World Weather

Ultraviolet Laser Detector to Profile World’s Winds

Teledyne e2v provided a key component for the highly customized ultraviolet laser detector for the Atmospheric Laser Doppler Instrument (ALADIN) on the European Space Agency’s Aeolus Satellite, which launched on Aug. 22, 2018. Contracted by Airbus Defence & Space, Teledyne e2v developed a unique Charge Coupled Device (CCD) type detector specifically for the mission. The

NASA Gets Close to Greenland’s Melting Ice

With a new research plane and a new base to improve its chances of outsmarting Atlantic hurricanes, NASA’s Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) campaign began its third year of gathering data on how the ocean around Greenland is melting its glaciers. OMG’s first two years of operations already collected the most comprehensive data available on the

Expedition Probes Ocean’s Smallest Organisms for Climate Answers

Satellite images of phytoplankton blooms on the surface of the ocean often dazzle with their diverse colors, shades and shapes. But phytoplankton are more than just nature’s watercolors: They play a key role in Earth’s climate by removing heat-trapping carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis. Yet a detailed account of what becomes of that
