NASA Satellite Image Shows India’s Sulphur Emissions Increase And China’s Decrease In Last 10 Years


A new study conducted by NASA and University of Maryland shows that India may soon become the world’s top sulphur dioxide emitter.  Sulphur dioxide is produced especially when coal is burned to produce electricity. An air pollutant, sulfur dioxide causes acid rain, haze, and several health-related problems.

Satellite data shows largest CO2 increase comes from Earth’s tropics

Laurel Kornfeld October 16th, 2017 The last El Niño in 2015–16 impacted the amount of carbon dioxide that Earth’s tropical regions released into the atmosphere, leading to Earth’s recent record spike in atmospheric carbon dioxide. The effects of the El Niño were different in each region. Image & Caption Credit: …

NASA Satellite Reveals Biggest Greenhouse Gas Spike In 2,000 Years

NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) has come back with some new and troubling findings on a carbon dioxide leak that resulted in a dramatic greenhouse gas spike during the 2015-16 El Niño period. According to a report from Space.com, the OCO-2 satellite emerged as an “important and unique” tool for …

Return of the comet: 96P spotted by NASA satellite

New Delhi: NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) spotted Comet 96P entering its field of view, the US space agency has said in a statement. NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) mission captured the comet entering the lower right corner of its view on October 25, before leaving on …

Comet 96P spotted again by NASA, ESA satellite

Scientists at NASA and European Space Agency have spotted the return of Comet 96P using the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) – making it the spacecraft’s most frequent cometary visitor. The comet entered the lower right corner of SOHO’s view on October 25, and skirted up and around …

How NASA tracks carbon emissions from space to better understand — and deal with — climate change

Fires, drought and warmer temperatures were to blame for excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere during the 2015-2016 El Niño, scientists with NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 say.The findings, part of five papers published in the journal Science, shed light on the mechanisms through which Earth “breathes” carbon dioxide, a potent …
