How Phytoplankton Can Affect Clouds

New research using NASA satellite data and ocean biology models suggests tiny organisms in vast stretches of the Southern Ocean play a significant role in generating brighter clouds overhead. Brighter clouds reflect more sunlight back into space affecting the amount of solar energy that reaches Earth’s surface, which in turn has implications for global climate. This image, captured by NASA's Aqua satellite, shows a large phytoplankton bloom following ocean currents off the coast of Patagonia.

Introducing Elastic Maps

Wiggle the map and watch it wobble. This is truly a new way to visualize terrain data.
A screenshot of the Elastic Terrain Map really doesn't do this map justice. The map is billed as a new way to visualize terrain data that uses animation and really needs to be experienced first-hand. The magic of the Elastic Terrain Map happens when you pan the map. Wiggle the map and watch it ...

The software and instructions are available from Oliver Kreylos at The University of California, Davis. http://idav.ucdavis.edu/~okreylos/ResDev/SARndbox/

A prime early example of a pictorial approach to mapping as it was made in 1901. Prior to the highway system that would connect the states, this map routes around the nation, with key points of interest. #oldmapgallery #pictorialmaps #usa #gameboards
