Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – August 4th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Washington’s spending habit is counterproductive. Common sense tells us, don’t treat taxpayer dollars like Monopoly money, and that’s why on Thursday, I voted against bloated, inefficient and wasteful federal spending.

Tennesseans rightly worry that the closure of rural hospitals will leave them without access to health care. My Rural Health Agenda comes directly at the request of small town mayors and community leaders, and fills gaps left by hospital closures. It ensures quality care is accessible closer to home for rural Tennesseans by targeting areas that need improvement.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

NASA’s Geosynchronous Littoral Imaging and Monitoring Radiometer (GLIMR) instrument to observe Coastal Ecosystems

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA has selected a space-based instrument under its Earth Venture Instrument (EVI) portfolio that will make observations of coastal waters to help protect ecosystem sustainability, improve resource management, and enhance economic activity.

The selected Geosynchronous Littoral Imaging and Monitoring Radiometer (GLIMR) instrument, led by principal investigator Joseph Salisbury at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, will provide unique observations of ocean biology, chemistry, and ecology in the Gulf of Mexico, portions of the southeastern United States coastline, and the Amazon River plume – where the waters of the Amazon River enter the Atlantic Ocean.

NASA's Geosynchronous Littoral Imaging and Monitoring Radiometer (GLIMR) instrument will collect high-resolution observations of coastal ecosystems in such areas as the northern Gulf of Mexico, shown in this image with phytoplankton blooms stretching from the Texas and Louisiana coast (left) across the Mississippi River delta (center) toward Florida (far right).
