NASA has announced plans to send an unmanned, remotely-controlled research vehicle into the upper atmosphere in order to find out what impact climate change is having on our planet.
Recent cuts to the scientific workforce of Environment Canada, a government agency responsible for meteorological services and environmental research, threaten scientific research related to the ozone layer in the upper atmosphere and pollution in the lower atmosphere, according to environmental scientists in the U.S.
NASA said on Friday that its Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) will most likely miss North America.
A 20-year-old defunct satellite is expected to fall to Earth sometime next week.
NASA on Wednesday said that a 20-year-old satellite is due to re-enter Earth’s atmosphere sometime in the next six weeks, burn up, and rain debris over a wide area.
In the spring of 2011, the ozone layer that protects us from harmful levels of ultraviolet rays has shown a record loss in the Arctic region.
For the first time, KIT scientists have successfully measured in the ozone layer the chlorine compound ClOOCl which plays an important role in stratospheric ozone depletion.
By merging more than a decade of atmospheric data from European satellites, scientists have compiled a homogeneous long-term ozone record that allows them to monitor total ozone trends on a global scale â€“ and the findings look promising.
