A View Of Antarctica From Outer Space

A View Of Antarctica From Outer Space | green infographics | Scoop.it

This image photographed almost ten years ago on September 21, 2005, shows a gorgeous, pristine view of Antarctica. It was taken with the AMSR-E instrument onboard NASA’s Aqua satellite. 
Upon zooming in, one can see magnificent details of the awe-inspiring sea ice, and how much space it occupies in relation to the rest of the planet.

Watch 62 Years of Global Warming in 13 Seconds

Watch 62 Years of Global Warming in 13 Seconds | green infographics | Scoop.it

An amazing 13-second NASA animation depicting how the globe has warmed during the period of 1950 to 2012.


From our friends at NASA comes this amazing 13-second animation that depicts how temperatures around the globe have warmed since 1950. You’ll note an acceleration of the temperature trend in the late 1970s as greenhouse gas emissions from energy production increased worldwide and clean air laws reduced emissions of pollutants that had a cooling effect on the climate, and thus were masking some of the global warming signal.


The data come from NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York (GISS), which monitors global surface temperatures. As NASA notes, “All 10 of the warmest years in the GISS analysis have occurred since 1998, continuing a trend of temperatures well above the mid-20th century average.

You would think, since we live here, that images of Earth would be immediately obvious to us. Then the European Space Agency began publishing 'Observing the Earth', one of the most spellbinding satellite photography series out there.

Paint By Particle: A Beautiful Climate Model By NASA

Paint By Particle: A Beautiful Climate Model By NASA | green infographics | Scoop.it
With all of the satellites in our skies, NASA collects up to 30 million observations of the Earth each day.
But it is only when these observations are layered into one picture, called climate modeling, that we get to see the wispy beauty of our atmosphere. The video below, titled Paint By Particle, was published by NASAexplore and allows us to “watch as dust and sea salt swirl inside cyclones, carbon bursts from fires, sulfate streams from volcanoes—and see how these aerosols paint the modeled world.” Enjoy!
