LEAD: Antarctic sea ice grows to new record.   
1. The donut of floating sea ice surrounding Antarctica froze to a new record of nearly 7.8 million  square miles.  
2. Scientists suspect changing global winds around Antarctica and the ozone hole are the primary causes. 
3. Most of this southern sea ice melts each summer.

LEAD: After a weekend launch (Saturday, January 10, 2015), NASA’s new climate science instrument called CATS will be installed on the exterior of the International Space Station on Friday, January 16, 2015.   
1. NASA laser instrument, called CATS, will help determine details of how tiny particles in the atmosphere warm and cool the earth. 
2. On average, airborne particles and clouds reflect about a quarter of the sun’s incoming energy which helps cool the earth. 
3. But the swirling layers of dust, smoke, sea salt, and sulfates can also absorb energy and hold in the earth’s heat.

LEAD: NASA launched a new Earth-observing satellite over the weekend (Saturday, January 31, 2015) from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.  1. The satellite's unique 20-foot spinning radar will measure the amount of water in the top two inches of soil around the world, every three days.  2. This information is important because the evaporation of water in soil affects how storm clouds develop.  3. Soil moisture data will assist forecasters to make better predictions of floods and droughts.

MMS solves the mystery of how magnetic fields around Earth connect and disconnect, explosively releasing energy via a process known as magnetic reconnection.  MMS consists of four identical spacecraft that will provide the first three-dimensional views of this fundamental process that occurs throughout our universe. MMS uses Earth’s protective magnetic space environment, the magnetosphere, as a natural laboratory to directly observe how it interacts with the sun’s extended magnetic field, which can result in reconnection. The four MMS spacecraft fly in varying formations through reconnection regions in well under a second, so key sensors on each MMS spacecraft have been designed to take certain measurements of the space environment 100 times faster than any previous mission. Like stretched rubber bands, magnetic fields store energy that is released explosively when the field lines are broken during reconnection.  Unlike rubber bands, reconnection can drive particles to nearly the speed of light. Credit: NASA/GSFC   11780   MMS Prelaunch Press Briefing

LEAD: September 21st, 2015, marks the one-year anniversary of NASA's MAVEN spacecraft circling Mars.   
1. MAVEN's goal is to determine how Mars lost its thick early atmosphere, and with it, its once hospitable climate. 
2. The spacecraft's Imaging Ultraviolet Spectrograph measures how the light from background stars dims as the starlight passes through different layers of the Martian atmosphere. This tells scientists about the atmosphere’s chemical makeup and its structure. 
3. The vertical distributions of oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide are important clues to Mars’ climate history.

LEAD: NASA scientists have made the first multi-year satellite-based estimate of how much Saharan dust in Africa floats all the way to South America’s Amazon rainforest.  1. An estimated 28 million tons of African dust falls on the Amazon rainforest – more than 100,000 semi-truck loads.  2. A small but very important ingredient in the dust is the phosphorus from an ancient dusty lake bed in Chad.  3. The African phosphorus plays a critical role as a natural fertilizer for the Amazon rainforest growth.  TAG: This dust transport is the largest on the planet. Satellite studies will also help determine its relationship to climate changes.   11785   NASA On Air: NASA Satellite Reveals How Much Dust Feeds Amazon's Plants (2/24/2015)
The Cloud-Aerosol Tranpsort System (CATS) was installed on the International Space Station on January 22, 2015.

Climate scientists will also use the CATS data, along with data from other Earth-observing instruments, to look at trends and interactions in clouds and aerosols over time.

LEAD: NASA is helping us visualize how winds affect hurricane paths by assimilating satellite data with observations from ships and buoys.   1. In this view of the Atlantic Ocean, the reds and yellows indicate warm ocean water.  2. In September 2011, Hurricane Ophelia was pushed by ocean winds right up the alley between a high and a low.  3. Just three days later, the winds changed and Hurricane Philippe was steered towards the U.S. Would Philippe threaten the East Coast?  4. No. Strong winds from the north, a cold front, caused Hurricane Philippe to take a 180-degree turn and move safely away from the U.S.  TAG: Combing satellite data with ship and buoy observations and models will help forecasters make better predictions of hurricane tracks.   11791   NASA On Air: NASA Tracks Hurricane Wind Fields (3/3/2015)
