Earth Blog: In New Mexico, Land of Volcanoes

01.11.2018
The Potrillo volcanic field in New Mexico is a perfect analog site for testing the kinds of instruments that future explorers might use to investigate volcanic areas on the Moon, Mars and other rocky planets or moons.

Antarctica from Above: Flying for Science, Finding Beauty

01.11.2018
Photographs from the 2017 Operation IceBridge field campaign show the many forms of land and sea ice around the frozen (and melting) southern continent.

Notes from the Field: ICESat-2 Antarctic Traverse

12.09.2017
Greetings from New Zealand!

Soon, we’ll report back from even further south. We’re headed to the heart of the Antarctic ice sheet, to collect measurements on the ground for the ICESat-2 mission.

Overview

The Climate and Radiation Laboratory seeks a better understanding of Earth's climate on all time scales, from daily, seasonal, and interannual variability through changes on geologic time scales. Our research focuses on integrated studies of atmospheric measurements from satellites, aircraft and in-situ platforms, numerical modeling, and climate analysis.

We investigate atmospheric radiation, both as a driver for climate change and as a tool for the remote sensing of Earth's atmosphere and surface. The Laboratory research program strives to better understand how our planet reached its present state, and how it may respond to future drivers of change, both natural and anthropogenic.
