Satellite image of a “Polar Low” observed in the Arctic Sea on 06 04 2007, framed in red. Greenland appears clearly at the top left, covered with clouds. Understanding Polar Lows Using Satellite Imagery During winter, small cyclones – typically
The numerical model MIMOSA allows to understand and predict the dynamics of the wind, vortex and the transport of air masses in the polar stratosphere (high altitude, 12-25 km). This package will use MIMOSA maps to make understandable these notions.
SODISM is a kind of camera onboard the satellite Picard in orbit around the Earth. SODISM regularly takes photos of the Sun to study its atmosphere. We will use these images obtained during the transit of Venus (passage of Venus
The Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) instrument to measure the parameters needed to understand physics and chemistry in the atmosphere. By analogy with common things, we will understand two important parts in the operation of the Lidar, measuring the distance
Understanding the concept of climate The general public is familiar with the notion of weather conditions, commonly known as “weather”, and weather forecasting on a few days scale. The weather is characterized by several atmospheric parameters of which the best
