The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) is a Science and Technology Center with the mission of developing new technologies and computer models to measure and predict the response sea level change to the mass balance of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. The data processing and computer modeling requirements of CReSIS demand a distributed cyberinfrastructure. Real-time processing ...


A 22 GHz mobile microwave radiometer for the study of stratospheric water vapor

E. Motte; P. Ricaud; M. Niclas; B. Gabard; F. Gangneron 2007 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, 2007

We present a new compact ground-based microwave radiometer dedicated to the study of middle atmospheric water vapor. The instrument detects the 616- 523 H2O transition line at 22.235 GHz. This radiometer has been designed to be easily transported and operated during measurement campaigns in remote places. The first retrievals, performed with the MOLIERE inversion and radiative transfer software, show good ...

  • Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate in the Anthropocene

    Humans are changing critical environmental conditions in many ways. Here, the important changes in atmospheric chemistry and climate are discussed. The most dramatic examples of major human impacts are the increase of the "greenhouse" gases, especially carbon dioxide (CO2), in the atmosphere and the unpredicted breakdown of much of the ozone in the lower stratosphere over Antarctica during the months of September to November, caused by the emissions of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Other, more regional but ubiquitous examples include photochemical smog and acid rain. Industrial activities are not alone in causing air pollution and in changing the chemical composition of the atmosphere. Biomass burning, which takes place largely in the developing world, also contributes in major ways. In the future, climate warming due to CO2 emissions will continue to increase over present levels and pose a major problem for humankind. Current radiative forcing by "greenhouse gases" can, to a substantial degree (up to half), be dampened by increased backscattering of solar radiation, either directly by aerosol particles or indirectly through their influence on cloud albedo, or also by cloud feedbacks independent of anthropogenic aerosols. Cloud and hydrological cycle feedbacks provide major challenges. It is unlikely and undesirable that aerosol emissions will continue to increase, as greater emphasis will be placed on air quality, also in the developing world. However, due to its long atmospheric lifetime and expected growth in global emissions, CO2 will continue to accumulate, exacerbating climate warming and related problems in the future. Drastic measures are thus needed at the international level to reduce the emissions, in particular, of CO2 through energy savings, alternative energy sources, and sequestration.
