NASA Curiosity Finds Evidence Of Atmosphere Thinning On Mars
2013-04-08 11:54:31

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA´s Curiosity rover has been busy searching for signs that life may have once existed on the Red Planet. In the eight months since NASA dropped the rover on Mars, it has made significant progress in the hunt for water and life. In the latest round of evidence pertaining to Mars´ past, new measurements from Curiosity point towards the sky. These measurements, which consisted of analysis of Argon atoms in the...

The manufacturing of short length medical Capillary tubing is a fully automated process in a clean room environment. The adhesion of the tubes due to low humidity conditions cause significant delays and can interrupt the production process. Reno, NV (PRWEB) March 31, 2013 This week a Silicon Valley clean room manufacturer, specializing the manufacturing of miniature Capillary tubing resolved a significant production issue utilizing Smart Fog intelligent humidification solutions. Until this...

Weather And Climate Models Improved Using SEALDH
2013-03-04 12:15:33

Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt A humidity sensor developed by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), the SEALDH laser hygrometer, has proven its worth when used aboard an aircraft; it fulfills all pre-conditions to be used as a transfer standard for conventional humidity-measuring instruments. This would allow the quality of air humidity measurements in the Earth's atmosphere - and, thus, also climate model computations - to be improved. Humidity measurements in the...

Is Mars Hot or Cold?
2013-02-08 14:49:48

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With all the attention being paid to Mars, we are learning something new about the red planet almost daily. Each new revelation is pretty heady information. But what about the weather on our celestial neighbor? One of the most common questions that people have is whether Mars is hot or cold. The early days of Earth was marked by a climate that was both warm and wet, and mirrors what Mars was like some 3.5 billion years ago....

Atmosphere Is Home To Substantial Number Of Microorganisms

[ Watch the Video: What is Bacteria? ] Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In 2010, a NASA DC-8 soared high up into the troposphere to collect air samples in order to study air masses associated with tropical storms. What they found was quite surprising. Bugs - microorganisms actually - in the troposphere. The troposphere is the portion of the Earth´s atmosphere that extends from ground level up to approximately 12 miles above sea level, and apparently it is...

Climate Change Clues Could Come From The Stratosphere
2013-01-10 09:57:10

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online 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. The program, which has been christened the Airborne Tropical Tropopause Experiment (ATTREX), will utilize instruments on board a long-range Global Hawk aircraft to collect measurements above the tropical Pacific Ocean, the US space agency explained....

Weather Model Discussion:  How To Use Surface Dew-points For Weather Forecasting Purposes
2013-01-29 08:53:47

Surface Dew-points can play a huge role in weather forecasting. The first such role is that it helps determine the amount of moisture in the atmosphere for a given point. If we look at the current dew-point map above from January 28, 2013 we can note several things of interest. First, if we look at where the black circle is around the number 70, we can make note that this air right off the coast of Texas is at a dew point of 70F. The temperature outside must be above 70F, because the...

Weather Pack For July 30, 2012
2012-08-01 12:22:59

Weather Pack is our way to envision what is happening with the weather and create a weather forecast for a certain area of the United States. Today’s focus is on Southwest Mississippi along the Mississippi River. On the left side we have a Skew-T which is used to help us determine what is happening in the upper levels at our forecast location. On the right side is our morning satellite image; both of these features are important to creating an accurate forecast. The Skew-T will show...

Surface Weather Map Features for July 5, 2012
2012-07-05 10:00:03

The morning weather map for July 5, shows us the current surface pressure readings. Surface Pressure is very important from a meteorological stand point. We use this to help us identify where our surface pressure centers are just like you see above. Our Low pressure area is over Northeast Colorado and also the High pressure over the Ontario area. Surface pressure is taken hourly from the stations and they are also mostly done on a 24hr basis, however some places will only submit their...

Surface Map Features

The map above shows our dew-point temperatures which is an important temp when it comes to weather. The dew-points help us determine how much moisture is in the atmosphere. If we look at the circle placed over Southern Mississippi we can see temps in the Mid 70’s. That is considered to be very saturated and humid type of weather. When you walk outside it feels very uncomfortable. While if we look back in Nevada we see 15, this is more respectful of being very dry air. This type of air also...

The Heat Wave Of The Central United States
2012-06-26 06:00:45

So why is there so much heat and humidity rising up into the Northern Plains creating a surge of hot weather? The answer is in the weather map above. If we look over Lake Michigan we see an area of High pressure which has a clockwise flow over the region. So places on the East are having cooler weather as they are getting the air from Canada pushing down towards them. North Dakota into the Gulf Coast are on the back side of the high so there air is coming from the Gulf of Mexico. If...
