New technology is bringing better connectivity to remote areas, helping farmers improve crop yields and allowing fisherfolk to venture more safely out into the sea.
Tree core chemistry can explain what happened before Mount Etna’s 2002 eruption and suggests that trees could play a role in rebuilding past eruptions.
Over 2 decades, Cluster has shed light on the auroral acceleration region, where parallel electric fields send charged particles on a collision course with the atmosphere.
Aerosol observations from EPIC—a sensor aboard a satellite—align well with ground- and aircraft-based data, including measurements of smoke plumes produced by recent megafires.
A new book presents an example-driven collection of basic methods, applications, and visualizations to process satellite data sets for Earth science research.
A new ground station and an expanded education network will lead to the launch of a security and Earth observation satellite in 2022.
A new mission involving synchronized aircraft observations is collecting data vital for improving our understanding of how aerosol particles and clouds influence each other.
Better real-time estimates of thermospheric density are vital to the safe management of satellite traffic in Low Earth orbit, ensuring those satellites continue to deliver critical services.
An innovative program focused on collaboration and capacity building is looking to improve outcomes for smallholder farmers, reduce hunger, and alleviate food insecurity in sub-Saharan Africa.
As the number of satellites in low Earth orbit grows by leaps and bounds, accurate calculations of the effects of atmospheric drag on their trajectories are becoming critically important.
