To measure the ionosphere's height, researchers in the Falkland Islands and Antarctica beamed radio waves up 250 km (150 mi) into the atmosphere
This alliance with Curious Labs builds a strategic link with the developers of a great complementary product set and technology that enhances the Atmosphere
experience with animated, smooth skin 3D avatars," said Addy Roff, senior product marketing manager at Adobe.
As seen from Earth, all the light filtering through the atmosphere
of an extrasolar planet appears to emanate from a single source--the unresolved image of the parent star.
Commercial jets cruise through the atmosphere
at an altitude of about 10.
It currently includes Atmosphere Builder, the world authoring tool; Atmosphere Player, the web browser plug-in; and the Atmosphere
Community Server, which enables real time interaction with other users in a shared immersive 3D Web environment.
Half the bromine that makes its way into the upper layers of the atmosphere
comes from methyl bromide, says Stephen A.
2]) in the atmosphere
trap the sun's heat and help warm Earth's land and oceans.
would contain carbon and other gases that originally were pulled into the core, but escaped as methane, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and other light gases as the core heated up.
Most of these compounds are totally new to the atmosphere
The Windows-based family of products also encompasses: Adobe Atmosphere, a sophisticated authoring tool; Atmosphere Player, a Web browser plug-in; and the Atmosphere
Collaboration Server, which enables real-time interaction between users within Atmosphere 3-D environments.
That's because the probe was swinging so violently and the atmosphere
was so thick that Huygens' sun sensor couldn't function properly.
And frozen methane high up in the atmosphere
produces wispy clouds.
The first-ever probe to be launched into the atmosphere
of one of the solar system's outer, gaseous giant planets, the probe was released from the Galileo orbiter in July.
The direct input of solar wind energy yields an immediate Earth output -- the ejection of part of the atmosphere
The multimillion-volt electric fields generated between strong thunderstorms and higher layers of the atmosphere
probably propel stray electrons upward at nearly the speed of light, says Umran Inan, a physicist at Stanford University.
