From space, we can understand fires in ways that are impossible from the ground. New Earth-observing satellites capture the significant impact of fires on our planet. In this animation of fires around the globe in 2002, each red dot marks a new fire. Dots change color to yellow after a few days and to black when fires burn out. From brush fires in Africa to forest fires in North America, satellites ... Full description.

This series of animations depicts the results of a computer simulation of the effects of deforestation on the surface temperature and precipitation in the Amazon region. Six animations are shown - a control simulation, a deforestation simulation, and the difference between the two for both surface temperature and rainfall. The period simulated is the second half of 1987. Full description.

Global carbon monoxide as measured by MOPITT from March 5, 2000 to March 7, 2000 is shown on a globe, which then unwraps to a cartesian projection. High values of carbon monoxide are shown in red and yellow, and the large areas of missing data in white are regions not seen by MOPITT during this three-day period. Full description.

CLAES made the first global measurements of CFCs in the stratosphere. CFCs enter the stratosphere through upwelling in the tropics. The CFCs decrease with height as they are broken down by UV radiation. CFCs are the major source of stratospheric chlorine. Red indicates large amounts of CFC-12. Full description.

Comment on this resource
Key to understanding the chlorine chemistry in the polar stratosphere is the measurement of polar stratospheric clouds, chlorine monoxide, and the reservoir gas chlorine nitrate. Chlorine nitrate has been measured by the Cryogen Limb Array Etalon Spectrometer, CLAES. CLAES makes measurements by looking at infrared emission from cloud particles and trace gases. CLAES measurements help to show that ... Full description.

Key to understanding the chlorine chemistry in the polar stratosphere is the measurement of polar stratospheric clouds, chlorine monoxide, and the reservoir gas chlorine nitrate. Chlorine nitrate has been measured by CLAES and chlorine monoxide by MLS. The CLAES and MLS measurements together help to show that the polar stratospheric clouds which form in the cold Arctic stratosphere have converted ... Full description.
