NASA to study climate change from the sky
This is NASA’s second series of “Earth Venture” sub-orbital investigations, as NASA began soliciting bids for these projects in 2007 at the behest of the National Research Council.

The first series of five projects was selected in 2010.“These new investigations address a variety of key scientific questions critical to advancing our understanding of how Earth works,” said Jack Kaye, associate director for research in NASA’s Earth Science Division in the US.

“These innovative airborne experiments will let us probe inside processes and locations in unprecedented detail that complements what we can do with our fleet of Earth-observing satellites,” he added. hese studies into several incompletely understood Earth system processes were selected as part of NASA’s Earth Venture-class projects.

The five selected investigations include Atmospheric chemistry and air pollution; ecosystem changes in a warming ocean; greenhouse gas sources.
