NASA Study reveals degradation of Amazon Forest due to Climate Change

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – An area of the Amazon rainforest twice the size of California continues to suffer from the effects of a megadrought that began in 2005, finds a new NASA-led study.

These results, together with observed recurrences of droughts every few years and associated damage to the forests in southern and western Amazonia in the past decade, suggest these rainforests may be showing the first signs of potential large-scale degradation due to climate change.

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’s radar shows the Moon’s Shackleton crater walls may hold patchy Ice

 

Small patches of ice could make up at most five to ten percent of material in walls of Shackleton crater.

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – Scientists using the Mini-RF radar on NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) have estimated the maximum amount of ice likely to be found inside a permanently shadowed lunar crater located near the moon’s South Pole.

As much as five to ten percent of material, by weight, could be patchy ice, according to the team of researchers led by Bradley Thomson at Boston University’s Center for Remote Sensing, in Massachusetts.
