Weather Balloon Helps Measure Earth's Reflectivity
2013-11-01 04:20:18

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The amount of sunlight reflecting off of Earth’s atmosphere is a key measurement for better understanding climate change, and weather balloons could help advance data collection techniques even more. NASA’s Earth Science Technology Office is supporting the development of the HyperSpectral Imager for Climate Science (HySICS). This instrument made its inaugural engineering balloon flight at the end of September, providing realistic,...

Seeing In The Dark With Novel Infrared Remote Sensing System

American Institute of Physics Thermal infrared (IR) energy is emitted from all things that have a temperature greater than absolute zero. Human eyes, primarily sensitive to shorter wavelength visible light, are unable to detect or differentiate between the longer-wavelength thermal IR "signatures" given off both by living beings and inanimate objects. While mechanical detection of IR radiation has been possible since Samuel Pierpont Langley invented the bolometer in 1880, devices that also...

NASA To Robert Green, light contains more than meets the eye: It contains fingerprints of materials that can be detected by sensors that capture the unique set of reflected wavelengths. Scientists have used the technique, called imaging spectroscopy, to learn about water on the moon, minerals on Mars and the composition of exoplanets. Green's favorite place to apply the technique, however, is right here on the chemically rich Earth, which is just what he and colleagues achieved this spring...

Bodkin Design & Engineering (BD&E) has been awarded a contract from the US Army to develop a High-Energy Laser (HEL) test capability for non-contact mapping of target surface temperature during HEL engagements. The sensor, based on BD&E´s patented HPA hyperspectral imaging technology, simultaneously maps the radiometrically-correct target radiance and the target surface temperature. The High-Energy Laser program is a key element in the US arsenal of defensive weaponry to...


Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
