Ground weather stations and radar have been measuring rainfall for decades, but these ground sensors have not been able to measure rainfall over the ocean. The TRMM is designed to do 49 exactly that in tropical and subtropical areas, where three-quarters of the earth’s rainfall occurs. The TRMM satellite is also able to measure where and how much rain forms inside a hurricane. Tall thunderclouds known as “hot towers” serve as indicators of the amount of heat in the hurricane. Water vapor releases heat as it condenses, so hot tower clouds indicate stronger hurricanes.

According to Morell: In that pollen lie clues to one of the greatest puzzles facing researchers like Whitlock: What has caused—and will cause again—the sudden climate changes that our Earth periodically undergoes? . the more rapid shifts that scientists have recently identified when the Earth switched suddenly from frozen ice age to picnic-warm and back again. How often and how quickly have such dramatic changes happened? 15 The fact that scientists look for answers to incredibly difficult environmental and climatological questions in the mud at the bottom of lakes, ponds, and the ocean may sound strange to nonscientists.

MODIS scans the entire surface of the earth every one to two days. On-site soil testing can later verify satellite 30 imagery, providing biomass evidence of climate change within a specific environment. One of the most important parts of analyzing biomass is investigating tropical forests, primarily because of the massive amount of stored carbon they contain. Mapping these forests is a huge challenge that has led the European Space Agency to launch the Tropisar airborne campaign. This ongoing project relies on an airborne radar system called SETHI.
