NASA Finding throws light on Rising Global Methane Emissions

Global methane emissions have been markedly increasing in recent years, with a large contributor being emissions from the global oil and gas industry. It is estimated that methane emissions globally have been increasing by a massive 25 teragrams per year since 2007. However, a problem was posed in breaking down this number between emissions from […]

पृथ्वी की कक्षा में अंतरिक्ष मलबे और खतरे

अमेरिका के नेशनल एयरोनॉटिक्स एंड स्पेस एडमिनिस्ट्रेशन यानी नासा के हाल के आंकड़ों के अनुसार अंतरिक्ष में 10 सेंटीमीटर (या चार इंच के बराबर) से बड़े 23000, एक सेंटीमीटर से बड़े 500,000 तथा एक मिलीमीटर से बड़े 100,00,000 अंतरिक्ष मलबे बिखरे पड़े हैं। हालांकि पहली नजर में देखा जाए तो तिल के बीज के आकार […]

NASA Researchers Discover 7 Earth-Sized Exoplanets Nearby

With the discovery of seven Earth-sized planets orbiting a dwarf star, we are on the right track to find another habitable system! What makes this discovery by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope special is that this is the first time that a series of Earth-sized planets have been found around a single star, hence setting a […]

Record warmest year third time in a row

NASA has declared this year to be the hottest year yet recorded. September turned out to be the warmest in modern temperature monitoring of 137 years. The recent findings follow record-breaking monthly anomalies throughout this year, leading the agency to believe that because of the highs reported so far. The first nine months of 2016, as […]

Seismological research and geosciences

Seismology research is the scientific study of earthquakes and the propagation of elastic waves through the earth or through other planet-like bodies. The research also includes studies of the environmental effects of earthquakes, such as tsunamis and other seismic phenomena such as volcanic, tectonic, oceanic, and atmospheric explosions. A related field that uses geology to infer […]

Aircraft Probing

Airborne measurements are extremely important for aerosol sampling, measurement of cloud properties, cloud physics, atmospheric chemistry and other scientific needs. Aircraft probing and surveillance enables the observation of upper air phenomena, especially cloud aerosol interaction. The wealth of atmospheric, aerosol and cloud microphysics data generated by aircraft probing can be used in assessing air pollution […]

‘Godzilla’ El Niño to be followed by La Niña this year

New Delhi, March 08 (G’nY News Service): The term El Niño refers to the large-scale ocean-atmosphere climate interaction linked to a periodic warming in sea surface temperatures across the central and east-central Equatorial Pacific. The recent El Niño weather phenomenon has been one of the most powerful on record. Following its high impact over the […]
