Alright, satellites are cool but this is REALLY cool.
First off, here’s another acronym for you to know, JPL. This is the Jet Propulsion Laboratory section of NASA. JPL is the leading U.S. center for robotic exploration of the solar system, and has 19 spacecraft and 10 major instruments carrying out planetary, Earth science and space-based astronomy missions.
Explained in this video is how satellites are capturing images and video of the Earth that will be used for research for upcoming years. Some satellites focus solely on capturing images of certain things. Whether it be clouds, waves, ice melt and accretion or even tiny air particles or aerosols. That’s exactly what some satellites are capturing in this video.
More specifically, in this video you’re seeing images of sea salt, smoke, and Saharan dust! This may seem insignificant to you but know how these aerosols interact with storms will better forecasting with storms based off of the way they interact. “Today’s research improves next year’s forecasting ability.”
