The scientists used a general circulation model known as ModelE (developed at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, New York). The model calculates ocean-atmosphere coupling effects in addition to allowing varying aerosol inputs.
The initial input for the simulation was 5 teragrams (megatons) of black carbon particles injected into Earth’s upper troposphere. This is the estimated result of the surface detonation of 100 Hiroshima-size bombs (each equivalent to 15K tons of TNT).
How is it clear humans are causing global warming or climate change? Check out the image and explanations in this article to find out.
Earlier this Spring, 200 climate science experts and policy makers gathered in Pacific Grove, California for ‘Asilomar 2’ (named after the first conference on bio-engineering held there in 1975), a … [Read full article]
The NASA/Global Hawk team, lead by Chris Naftel at the Dryden Research Center (Edwards Air Force base), is preparing for an important remote monitoring mission called the Global Hawk Pacific campaign, or GloPac, which will be comprised of four to five separate flights over the Pacific Ocean and the Arctic.
