Ozone Monitoring Instrument Team Spots “Fingerprints” on Earth’s Atmosphere

NASA FEATURE – DraftOzone Monitoring Instrument Team Spots “Fingerprints” on Earth’s AtmosphereThe Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) aboard NASA’s Aura satellite specializes in finding “fingerprints” — signatures of gases and particles that clutter the atmosphere.

NASA Instrument to More Accurately Measure Ozone Discovered by “Accident”

NASA research scientist Tom Hanisco set out to build an instrument capable of measuring a short-lived chemical that cleanses the atmosphere of methane — a potent greenhouse gas — but found instead that his discovery outshined the best commercial instruments at measuring ambient levels of ozone.

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center Celebrates 60 Years

On May 1, 1959, the Beltsville Space Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, was renamed NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in honor of Robert H. Goddard, widely considered the father of modern rocketry. Thus began a 60-year boom in science and technological innovation.

NASA Celebrates Earth Day with Social Media, Public Events

This Earth Day, April 22, NASA invites you to celebrate our beautiful home planet by participating in a global social media event and local events around the country.

Picture Earth for Earth Day 2019

For Earth Day 2019, NASA invites you to celebrate the planet we call home with our #PictureEarth social media event.

NASA Invites Media to 57th Annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium

2018’s Biggest Volcanic Eruption of Sulfur Dioxide

The Manaro Voui volcano on the island of Ambae in the nation of Vanuatu in the South Pacific Ocean made the 2018 record books.

New NASA Book Shares Beauty of Earth from Space

NASA’s new 168-page book “Earth,” a collection of dramatic images captured by Earth-observing satellites, is available now in hardcover and ebook, and online with interactive features.

Detergent-like Molecule Recycles Itself in Atmosphere

Hydroxyl radicals are critical for offsetting concentrations of methane in the air.

Greenhouse Gas ‘Detergent’ Recycles Itself in Atmosphere: NASA Study

A tiny compound in the atmosphere that acts as a 'detergent' to breakdown methane and other greenhouse gases has been found to recycle itself to maintain a steady global presence in the face of rising emissions.

California Fires Smoke Spews Aerosols Into an Already Saturated Sky

New research using data collected during NASA airborne science campaigns shows how smoke from wildfires worldwide could impact the atmosphere and climate much more than previously thought.

Ozone Hole is Big, But Tempered by CFC Reductions

The hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica was slightly above average size in 2018, but smaller than expected for the weather conditions.

NASA Brings its Science and Supercomputing Advances to SC18

From designing rocket launch pad components and safer rotorcraft to improving flood and drought forecasts to modeling the formation of planetary disks, NASA will highlight supercomputing advances at SC18, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, Nov. 12 to 15 in Dallas.

Ozone Hole Modest Despite Optimum Conditions for Ozone Depletion

Declining levels of ozone-depleting chemicals in the Antarctic stratosphere helped keep the ozone hole that forms over the continent each September at slightly above average size in 2018, NOAA and NASA scientists reported today.

Smokier and Smokier Skies in India

Since 2003, the number of November crop fires in northern India has increased significantly.

NASA Team Demonstrates “Science on a Shoestring” with Greenhouse Gas-Measuring Instrument

A novel instrument that has already proven its mettle on field campaigns will attempt to measure atmospheric greenhouse gases from an occultation-viewing, low-Earth-orbiting CubeSat mission called Mini-Carb early next year — marking the first time this type of instrument has flown in space.

Smoke Plumes Tower Over California

Several fires are spreading noxious gases and particles across the state—and to a lesser degree much of the country.

NASA Goddard’s Science Jamboree Connects Disciplines and Interns

The Goddard Science Jamboree provides an opportunity for interns and senior scientists alike to learn more about the science happening in other disciplines in one room.

NASA Joins Effort to Sniff Out Ozone in the Northeast

A scientific investigation is looking into how troublesome ozone forms and how it's being transported around the Long Island Sound.

Hazardous Pre-Monsoon Dust Pollution

The most intense dust storms usually occur just before monsoon season. But this year has been worse than usual.

Cloudy with a Chance of Chemistry

The most important question at the daily briefing for NASA’s Atmospheric Tomography, or ATom, mission is: What are we flying through next?

NASA Scientist to Discuss 'Mapping the Blue Marble: Using Space-Based Observations for Improved Global Water Security and Sustainability' at Library of Congress Lecture

The public is invited to a free talk called 'Mapping the Blue Marble: Using Space-Based Observations for Improved Global Water Security and Sustainability,' with Dr. John Bolten.

NASA Satellite Images Show Fissures from Hawaii Volcano

The eruption of Kilauea Volcano on the island of Hawaii triggered a number of gas- and lava-oozing fissures in the East Riff Zone of the volcano.

2020 Decadal Survey Missions: At a Glance

Any telescope that reaches the launch pad in the 2030s likely will look much different than the concepts four teams are currently studying to inform the 2020 Decadal Survey for Astrophysics, but the studies do offer a roadmap.
