WMO launches dust report

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has launched its first annual Airborne Dust Bulletin.

The bulletin, issued on 12 April, provides an overview of atmospheric dust levels and geographical distribution in 2016. Estimates of dust content were derived from daily forecasts from the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecast. - April 2017

Meteosat-7 decommissioned

Meteosat-7, the last first-generation Meteosat geostationary spacecraft, has been decommissioned after almost 20 years of service.

The final command was sent at 09:00 UTC on 11 April, ending the service record not only of one spacecraft, but of the whole Meteosat first-generation mission begun by the European Space Agency in 1977. - April 2017

Drones allow measurements within volcanic clouds

A team of volcanologists and engineers from the universities of Bristol and Cambridge in the UK has collected measurements from directly within volcanic clouds, together with visual and thermal images of inaccessible volcano peaks.

A recent 10-day research trip saw the team carry out several proof-of-concept flights at the summits of both Volcán de Fuego and Volcán de Pacaya in Guatemala. Using lightweight modern sensors, they measured temperature, humidity and thermal data within the volcanic clouds and took images of multiple eruptions in real time. - April 2017

ISS investigation capability boosted

Orbital ATK’s Cygnus spacecraft delivered more than 7.6 metric tons of cargo to the International Space Station on 22 April.

Orbital ATK’s seventh cargo delivery flight to the station launched on 18 April on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex 41 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, USA. The spacecraft will remain at the space station until July before its destructive re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere. - April 2017

Higher sensitivity and greater range resolution

Models that forecast atmospheric events represent complex relationships between many factors, including the impact of natural and man-made aerosols on local and global climates. By gathering detailed data over time, our understanding of the composition and movement of aerosols expands. Sigma Space’s new high-definition Mini Micro Pulse Lidar (MiniMPL-HD) remote sensing system provides greater granularity for assessing airborne particles and supports increased accuracy in predictive analysis. - March 2017

Sun glitter helps monitor waves

Scientists are using sun glitter in images from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite mission to map wave movement.

Use of measurements of roughness from satellite sensors is not new, but by capturing the glitter of sunlight on water, Sentinel-2’s multispectral camera can provide a wealth of information about the direction, height and movement of waves. - March 2017

New study of space weather “scientific gold nuggets”

A new, highly sensitive GPS receiver will help detect subtle fluctuations in the signals from GPS satellites on the International Space Station (ISS).

Developed by engineers at Cornell University in the USA, the FOTON (Fast Orbital TEC for Orbit and Navigation) GPS receiver arrived at the ISS last month on board the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. It will study ‘space weather’ – charged particles in the plasma of space that affect the performance of communications and navigation satellites. - March 2017

Research equipment mission approach aborted

A mission carrying more than 2.5 tonnes of research equipment, cargo and supplies to the International Space Station (ISS) has failed to dock.

A problem with the GPS system occurred on 22 February, three days into the mission, when the SpaceX supply ship Dragon was less than a mile from the ISS. The approach was aborted, although NASA has since confirmed that neither the station nor its six-person crew were in any danger. Another attempt is to be made on Thursday, 23 February. - February 2017

A lidar lightning first

In a national first, US scientists have used high-resolution lidar data to determine lightning’s impact on tropospheric ozone.

Scientists at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) have used the university’s Rocket-city Ozone Quality Evaluation in the Troposphere (RO3 QET) lidar to measure ozone that was chemically produced by summertime lightning over the USA. Following further development, the research could play an important role in air quality prediction and assessment. - February 2017
