INTRIGUING IMAGE OF THE WEEK
INDUSTRY INSIGHTS & TRENDS
- Volcanic Emissions Can Change Clouds
For two weeks in mid-May, NASA satellites observed volcano tracks nearly every day.
- Ice Melt Linked to Accelerated Regional Freshwater Depletion
Seven of the regions that dominate global ice-mass losses are melting at an accelerated rate, a new study shows, and the quickened melt rate is depleting freshwater resources that millions of people depend on.
- Snow Mass Estimates Now More Reliable
Warming surface temperatures are known to have driven substantial reductions in the extent and duration of northern hemisphere snow cover.
- NASA Probes Environment, COVID-19 Impacts, Possible Links
Scientists are using information from NASA’s Earth-observing satellites, on-the-ground sensors and computer-based datasets to study the environmental, economic and societal impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
