Viewing the PEM Instrument on UARS
UARS measures the flux of energetic particles from space using the Particle Environment Monitor, PEM. These high energy particles cause ozone depletion at high altitudes by producing nitrogen and hydrogen radicals.

Urban Signatures: Latent Heat Flux
Big cities influence the environment around them. For example, urban areas are typically warmer than their surroundings. Cities are strikingly visible in computer models that simulate the Earths land surface. This visualization shows latent heat flux predicted by the Land Information System (LIS) for a day in June 2001. Latent heat flux is lower in the cities because there is less evaporation there. Only part of the global computation is shown, focusing on the highly urbanized northeast corridor
20-Year Arctic Surface Temperature Trend
Here the 20-year surface temperature trend is shown over the Arctic region. This animation shows the warming and cooling regions in steps from the regions of least change to the areas of greatest change. Blue hues indicate cooling regions; red hues depict warming. Light regions indicate less change while darker regions indicate more. The temperature scale used ranges from -0.4 to +0.4 degrees Celsius in increments of .02 degrees. (See color bar below)
Clouds over the Great Lakes from GOES-11: August 1, 2000
This animation is one of a series showing the first data from GOES-11. The data shown was taken at one-minute intervals.
Earths Radiation Belts with Safe Zone Orbit
Spacecraft orbiting in the Safe Zone, between two and three Earth radii, can be subjected to high levels of harmful radiation as the radiation belts fluctuate in response to space weather events.
Araona Crater (Iturralde Structure)
The Araona Crater (also known as the Iturralde Structure) is a suspected crater from an impactor which struck northern Bolivia approximately 20,000 years ago. The feature is believed to have been caused by a short period comet striking at 70 kilometers per second and splattering into the muddy alluvial flood plain in the Lower Amazon jungle. The impact created a circular depression which is now roughly 8 kilometers across and 3 meters deep. The structure was discovered in 1988 Landsat data, but
