This computer-generated animation depicts the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) instrument in operation. CERES measures the energy at the top of the atmosphere and estimates energy levels in the atmosphere and at the Earth's surface. Using information from very high resolution cloud-imaging instruments on the same spacecraft, CERES also will determine cloud properties, including ... Full description.

The Moon's gravity imparts tremendous energy to the Earth, raising tides throughout the global oceans. What happens to all this energy? Scientists studying data from the orbiting TOPEX/Poseidon satellite believe they now have an answer. Users can read about the tidal energy imparted upon the earth by the Moon and where scientists believe it is dissipated, and view animations that show these effects. ... Full description.
