What do you see in the clouds? ☁️☁️☁️ ⁣ ⁣ These spiraling cloud patterns off the coast of Morocco were captured by our @NASAEarth instrument on the Suomi NPP satellite on July 19, 2019. They're known as von Kármán vortices, which can form nearly anywhere that fluid flow is disturbed by a solid object. Here, the patterns formed when winds flowed around small islands in the North Atlantic.⁣ ⁣ Credit: NASA Earth Observatory image by Joshua Stevens, using VIIRS day-night band data from the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership. ⁣ ⁣ #clouds #nighttime #vortices #cloudpatterns #earth

This rounded object isn't something seen through a microscope. Instead, it's a vast orb of gas in space, cast off by an aging star and seen by the @NASAHubble telescope. The star is visible in the orb's center, shining through the gases it formerly held onto for most of its stellar life. When stars like the Sun grow advanced in age, they expand and glow red. These so-called red giants then begin to lose their outer layers of material into space. More than half of such a star's mass can be shed in this manner, forming a shell of surrounding gas. At the same time, the star's core shrinks and grows hotter, emitting ultraviolet light that causes the expelled gases to glow. Image credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA, R.

Our DC-8 flying laboratory passed directly through a large fire cloud — called a pyrocumulonimbus — on August 8 as it was rising from a fire in eastern Washington, giving scientists a look at the phenomena. These clouds form when the intense heat of wildfires lift the smoke above the boundary layer, the lowest part of Earth's atmosphere.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ The flight was part of a joint NOAA and NASA field campaign called FIREX-AQ.

#Regram #RG @ladzinski: Disgustingly unacceptable. I have no other words for this scene, an algae bloom on Lake Erie’s south western shore. The leading contributor of these blooms is excess phosphorus and nitrates from agricultural fertilizer that’s washed into streams as well as distributed via wind during winter months. Pollutants from industrial and pharmaceutical factories are also a link. High temperatures and still air create perfect conditions for algae to proliferate and accumulate at the surface.

As the @NASAHubble telescope turned its eye on Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, an Earth-sized storm rolling counterclockwise between two bands of clouds, it noticed something unusual. Can you tell what it is? 🤔⁣ ⁣ The color palette in the clouds is more intense than usual. The colorful bands, which flow in opposite directions at various latitudes, result from different atmospheric pressures. Lighter bands rise higher and have thicker clouds than the darker bands.

No, this red beam in space isn't a light saber! It's a galaxy, far, far away — 44 million light-years away, to be exact. We often imagine galaxies as having massive spiral arms or thick disks of dust, but not all galaxies are oriented face-on as viewed from Earth. From our viewpoint, our Spitzer Space Telescope can detect this galaxy's infrared light but can only view the entire galaxy on its side where we can't see its spiral features. We know it has a diameter of roughly 60,000 light-years — a little more than half the diameter of our own Milky Way galaxy.

#Regram #RG @guardian: Ethiopians have planted about 350m trees in a single day as part of a national effort to tackle the climate crisis and deforestation. The aim is to grow 4bn new trees by getting every citizen to plant at least 40 seedlings over the summer. Public offices reportedly closed to enable civil servants to take part in the initiative, which broke India's record of most trees planted in a day (50m). Ethiopia's forest coverage shrank from 35% in the 1900s to just 4% in the 2000s.

It’s an environmental struggle against wealthy developers who seek free reign. It’s a microcosm of what’s happening across Hawaii and the world: profiteers exploiting fragile places without regard for the future. We’re not concerned about how many passive dollars this will bring our economy. We are concerned about whether we will be able to breathe in 20 years, or be out of fresh water, or have any space left in our sacred places, or if the beaches we grew up in still be there.

#Regram #RG @cnnclimate: Environmentalists have removed more than 40 tons of plastic from the Pacific Ocean. And while that might seem like a lot — equivalent in weight to about 24 cars — it barely made a dent. Members of the Ocean Voyages Institute said the cleanup mission was the "largest and most successful ocean cleanup to date" in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Located between California and Hawaii, it is the biggest concentration of floating debris in the world. The crew removed trash including detergent bottles, plastic furniture and children's toys, and also collected fishing gear called "ghost nets" — massive nets of nylon or polypropylene that drift and accumulate plastic debris. “What we’ve done out there is small compared to the magnitude of the problem, but it’s scalable and can be spread,” said the founder of the group. It's estimated that 1.15 to 2.41 million tons of plastic enter the ocean each year. (📸: Ocean Voyages Institute)

These bright patches can be seen here amid dark, tangled streams of cosmic dust. Astronomers look for these telltale signs of star formation when they study galaxies throughout the cosmos, as star formation rates, locations, and histories offer critical clues about how these colossal collections of gas and dust have evolved over time. New generations of stars contribute to — and are also, in turn, influenced by — the broader forces and factors that mold galaxies throughout the universe, such as gravity, radiation, matter, and dark matter.

#Regram #RG @financialtimes: 🚨 Temperatures are rising, the glaciers of the Himalayas are melting — and here’s why this is particularly significant: because the area provides water for about 800m people across Asia. 🚨 A forthcoming study surveyed decades of satellite data and found that the glaciers have been losing the equivalent of 50cm of ice vertically each year since 2000, melting twice as fast as they were during the 1975 to 2000 period. Several factors contribute to melting in the Himalayas, including settled soot and changing precipitation factors. However, the new study suggests that temperature is the single biggest factor that drives the rate of melting, underscoring the impact of climate change on an area that is a critical source of water supply for India and China. 🔸 The research comes as global carbon dioxide emissions hit a record high last year, and as the earth’s average temperature has warmed about 1C compared with pre-industrial times. 🔸 Read more at the link in our bio. 📸: PRAKASH MATHEMA/AFP/Getty Images

#Regram #RG @time: The long journey to the Fijian village of Vunidogoloa leads to a #ghosttown forced into retreat by #climatechange and the rising seas that come with it. Once home to more than 100 people, Vunidogoloa has been overrun by the tropical forest. Plants cover the town square. The stench of rotting rodents wafts from abandoned homes, and salt water seeps up through the soil as far as 300 ft. from Natewa Bay. A few times a year, king tides inundate the village with knee-high waters; locals were forced to place precious possessions on tall surfaces and run for the hills. And so, five years ago, Vunidogoloa was abandoned. The Fijian government built a new town about a mile up the hill at a cost of half a million dollars. Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama tells TIME he plans to move 40 Fijian villages in the coming years to cope with rising sea levels. “Every day," he says, "I think about climate change."

#Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange: Monarch butterflies migrate annually from Mexico and California to the northern US and Canada. Multiple facets of climate change are contributing to the variation in migratory patterns and population size. Global warming adversely affects monarchs’ reproductive cycles and development at all stages of life, and delays the butterflies’ natural instincts to make moves. Coupled with increased storms, rain, and high winds, the migration is greatly disrupted. This great journey is further impeded by the declining availability of the monarch’s main food source and breeding place: milkweed. Increasing temperatures and periods of drought are making it harder for this plant to grow. Illegal logging and land-use changes are limiting the space where it can flourish. Farmers' use of herbicide-resistant varieties of crops allows for more liberal spraying of herbicides and pesticides. This helps control weeds in their fields but also depletes the natural habitat for butterflies. Monarchs pollinate plants, like milkweed, and allow them to flourish. Without these pollinators the natural food web and human food systems are damaged. This unique migratory process is not only a spectacular sight, but has far-reaching effects on larger ecosystems. #everydayclimatechange #monarchbutterfly #mexico #biosphere #Michoacan #mariposa #ReservadelaBiosferadelaMariposaMonarca #SantuarioElRosario

#Regram #RG @theeconomist: Bleaching is bad for coral. It happens when heat-stressed polyps, the sessile animals that construct coral reefs, eject the photosynthetic algae which usually reside within them. These algae are symbionts, providing nutrients to their hosts in return for shelter, so losing them is harmful to polyps and often results in their death. The higher temperatures brought about by global warming have therefore led to worries that more frequent episodes of bleaching might result in the loss of entire reefs.
