A new detection technique and a new satellite instrument should help ease the struggle of detecting tiny particles in the air that may affect global climate.
When NASA launches the Glory satellite, researchers will have the most accurate instrument to date for measuring solar fluctuations.
Black soot deposited on Tibetan glaciers has contributed significantly to the retreat of the world’s largest non-polar ice masses, according to new research.
The sun has powered almost everything on Earth since life began, including its climate.
Scientists know that aerosols play an outsized role in Earth’s climate. And much of that knowledge has come from the Aerosol Robotic Network, or AERONET, the collaborative, international sensor network.
New NASA research suggests that much of the atmospheric warming observed in the Arctic since 1976 may be due to changes in tiny airborne particles.
