redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online New research suggests that the southern part of the Amazon Rainforest faces a higher risk of dieback (the gradual dying of plant shoots beginning at the tip) as a result of seasonal drying than reported by climate models used by the most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Furthermore, University of Texas at Austin Jackson School of Geosciences professor Rong Fu and her colleagues report that severe loss of...

A new study funded by NASA has found that Amazon forests are losing their greenness due to last year's record-breaking drought. "The greenness levels of Amazonian vegetation -- a measure of its health -- decreased dramatically over an area more than three and one-half times the size of Texas and did not recover to normal levels, even after the drought ended in late October 2010," Liang Xu of Boston University and the study's lead author said in a statement. Researchers used computer models...

By Tatem, Andrew J Goetz, Scott J; Hay, Simon I Views from space have led to countless advances on the ground in both scientific knowledge and daily life The former Soviet Union's launch of the world's first artificial satellite, Sputnik I, heralded the era of satellite remote sensing. Since that epic moment on October 4,1957, hundreds of Earth-observing satellites have followed. Half a century of imagery has provided both iconic views and unprecedented scientific insights. The science of...
