A new instrument will study the plumes of Saturn’s small moon, telling scientists more about the possibility of life in its global ocean.
With the rise in atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2), carbonÛªs role in ocean chemistry and biology is being augmented. New tracking and modeling techniques help to reveal how a changing atmosphere may impact the oceans. Carbon plays a leading role in ocean chemistry and biology, a role currently augmented by rising atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2). Tracking the … Read More
ISS-RapidScat delivers valuable measurements for weather models, storm tracking, and forecasting. What happens when a key instrument on a billion-dollar satellite ceases to function? When it can take decades to plan the launch for a replacement satellite, one might want to build an instrument on the fly – out of spare parts – and hitch a ride as secondary payload … Read More
