Size Matters: Why NASA Is Measuring Raindrops

NASA and its partners do cool things. I worked at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center for twelve years as a Research Meteorologist. By the way, being a meteorologist at NASA has nothing to do with forecasting for rocket launches even though I got the question frequently. I was a research [...]

A Incredible Supercomputer Model That Visualizes Carbon Dioxide Levels in the Earth’s Atmosphere

last monthHumor / odd : Laughing Squid

In 2014, climate scientist Bill Putnam who works in the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, presented an incredibly startling supercomputer model that visualized the increasing carbon dioxide levels present in the Earth’s atmosphere over the course of a year. He explained how the photosynthesis of trees and other plant […]
