Novel NASA Instrument Sets Sights on Earth-bound Solar Radiation

A very small instrument has a big job ahead of it: measuring all Earth-directed energy coming from the Sun and helping scientists understand how that energy influences our planet’s severe weather, climate change and other global forces. About the size of a shoebox or gaming console, the Compact Total Irradiance Monitor (CTIM) is the smallest

Subpopulation of Greenland Polar Bears Found by NASA-Funded Study

Greenland’s fjords harbor a unique group of polar bears that rely on glacial ice, a NASA-funded study reports in Science. Polar bears throughout the Arctic depend on sea ice as a platform for hunting seals. As human-caused climate change warms the planet and Arctic sea ice melts away, polar bears are scrambling to find ice

Five Things to Know About NASA’s New Mineral Dust Detector

Each year, strong winds carry more than a billion metric tons—the weight of 10,000 aircraft carriers—of mineral dust from Earth’s deserts and other dry regions through the atmosphere. While scientists know that the dust affects the environment and climate, they don’t have enough data to determine, in detail, what those effects are or may be

NASA’s ECOSTRESS Detects ‘Heat Islands’ in Extreme Indian Heat Wave

A relentless heat wave has blanketed India and Pakistan since mid-March 2022, causing dozens of deaths, fires, increased air pollution and reduced crop yields. Weather forecasts show no prospect of relief any time soon. NASA’s Ecosystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station instrument (ECOSTRESS) has been measuring these temperatures from space, at the highest

California Field Campaign Helping Scientists Protect Diverse Ecosystems

With a plane crisscrossing the sky and researchers working on land and sea, the Surface Biology and Geology High-Frequency Time Series campaign (SHIFT) combines the ability of airborne science instruments to gather data over widespread areas with the more concentrated observations scientists conduct in the field to study natural environments. SHIFT is jointly led by

NASA Finds New Way to Monitor Underground Water Loss

Scientists have produced a new method that holds the promise of improving groundwater management critical to both life and agriculture in dry regions. The method sorts out how much underground water loss comes from aquifers confined in clay, which can be drained so dry that they will not recover, and how much comes from soil

International Sea-Level Satellite Takes Over From Predecessor

On March 22, 2022, the newest U.S.-European sea-level satellite, Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich, became the official reference satellite for global sea-level measurements. This means that sea-surface height data collected by other satellites will be compared to the information produced by Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich to ensure their accuracy. Launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in November 2020,

No Breathing Easy for City Dwellers: Particulates

Air pollution is the fourth-leading risk factor for death around the world. But one type of pollutant is particularly harmful: fine particulate matter (PM2.5). These small, inhalable particles (less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter) result from direct emissions into the air as well as interactions among other pollutants. PM2.5 is the leading cause of death

Quantum Sensor Breakthrough Paves Way for Groundbreaking Map of World Under Earth’s Surface

An object hidden below ground has been located using quantum technology, a long-awaited milestone with profound implications for industry, human knowledge and national security. University of Birmingham researchers from the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Timing reported their achievement in Nature. It is the first in the world for a quantum gravity
