I would have gotten better footage with an ND filter, I find in retrospect, since it hit my camera’s capacity to handle bright light only to catch a glimpse of the bite taken out of the sun behind its still-blinding glare. 28 more words

Satellite imagery of clouds reveals evidence of climate change

Article in Nature, Vol. 536, Issue 7614, pp. 72-74, “Evidence for climate change in the satellite cloud record”

Summary of article: Using climate modelling specific for predicting cloudiness and satellite records of cloud cover, the reasons underlying recent decadal changes in cloud cover and movement of storm tracks was uncovered, with greenhouse gas emissions, as well as tropospheric heating and atmospheric cooling having a large impact on observational cloud dataset. 122 more words
