Aerosol optical depth from Terra/MODIS, 1-month composite.  In the maps shown here, dark brown pixels show high aerosol concentrations, while tan pixels show lower concentrations, and light yellow areas show little or no aerosols. Black shows where the sensor could not make its measurement.  Aerosol optical depth is the degree to which aerosols prevent the transmission of light by absorption or scattering of light.   12302   Aerosol Optical Thickness, MODIS, 2000-2016

Two key climate change indicators have broken numerous records through the first half of 2016, according to NASA analyses of ground-based observations and satellite data. Each of the first six months of 2016 set a record as the warmest respective month globally in the modern temperature record, which dates to 1880. Meanwhile, five of the first six months set records for the smallest monthly Arctic sea ice extent since consistent satellite records began in 1979. NASA researchers are in the field this summer, collecting data to better understand our changing climate.

The Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), at center, is the second-largest satellite galaxy orbiting our own. This image superimposes a photograph of the SMC with one half of a model of its dark matter (right of center). Lighter colors indicate greater density and show a strong concentration toward the galaxy's center. Ninety-five percent of the dark matter is contained within a circle tracing the outer edge of the model shown. In six years of data, Fermi finds no indication of gamma rays from the SMC's dark matter.  Credits: Dark matter, R.

Over the past century, humans have accelerated the use of natural resources such as fossil fuels, old growth forests and groundwater. This has warmed the ocean and atmosphere, changed their chemistry and caused extra runoff from land. From analysis of data collected by satellites and sensors monitoring Earth for the past few decades, we know that these mul5ple stressors impact microscopic life in the ocean as well as airborne par5cles and clouds, but we do not know to what extent or whether changes will reach a 5pping point. The future Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission will measure and help resolve the complex role of these interrelated Earth systems and their impact on fisheries, ocean chemistry and nutrients, climate feedbacks and human health.   12332   PACE -- Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem

Bubbles, bubbles, and more bubbles, in a steady stream. Many lakes in the boreal regions of Alaska are emitting methane, the product of decomposing organic matter left over from the Ice Age. Thawing permafrost has caused areas of land to slump and fill up with water, creating these bodies of water called thermokarst lakes. The water then exacerbates the thawing, expanding the size of the lake and producing even more methane. In the early cold season, ice covers the lakes and traps methane in large pockets just beneath the surface. University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists working as part of NASA’s Arctic boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) find and measure the methane gas in these pockets seep-by-seep and lake-by-lake. ABoVE combines precise methane measurements from individual lakes with satellite data that can monitor lakes like these across the Arctic, to accurately model how much methane sub-lake seeps are adding to the atmosphere. For more on the bubbling lakes: https://blogs.nasa.gov/earthexpeditions/2016/08/23/mapping-methane-in-a-bubbling-arctic-lake/    Complete transcript  available.   12351   ABoVE campaign videos

Scientists at the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center regulary produce a forecast of sea surface temperatures in the equatorial Pacific ocean.  The temperatures in this area are used to determine the conditions known as El Niño and La Niña.  For several months, the NASA forecast has indicated the temperatures will be neutral over the next nine months.  This indicates there will be no La Niña in 2016-2017, after the previous year's very strong El Niño.  Music: Find The Answer, by Klangraum.

LEAD: NASA and the National Snow and Ice Data Center report that the Arctic sea ice minimum ties that of 2007 as the second lowest of the 38 year satellite data record.  1. The ice extent went down to 1.6 million square miles. This is 0.9 million square miles less than the long-term average from 1981 to 2010.  2. The Arctic ice cover helps regulate the planet's temperature.  3. The yellow outline shows the average sea ice minimum from 1979 through 2010.  TAG: Since 1978 researchers have observed a steep decline in the average extent of Arctic sea ice for every month of the year.   12374   NASA On Air: 2016 Arctic Sea Ice Minimum Ties Second Lowest On Record (9/15/2016)

NASA’s Van Allen Probes Spot Electron Rainfall in the Atmosphere    In addition to the original video, a still image is also available for download within the download list section.   Our planet is nestled in the center of two doughnut-shaped regions of powerful, dynamic radiation: the Van Allen belts, where high-energy particles are trapped by Earth’s magnetic field. Depending on incoming radiation from the sun, they can gain energetic particles. On the other hand, the belts can lose energized particles too. 
We are familiar with rapid changes in weather, and the radiation belts can experience these too – particles can be depleted by a thousand-fold in mere hours. These dramatic loss events are called drop-outs, and they can happen when intense bouts of solar radiation disturb Earth’s magnetic environment. There have been many theories on how this happens, but scientists have not had the data to pinpoint which one is correct. 
However, on Jan. 17, 2013, NASA's Van Allen Probes were in just the right position to watch a drop-out in progress and resolve a long-standing question as to how the lower region of the belts close to Earth loses high-energy electrons – known as ultra-relativistic electrons for their near-light speeds. During a drop-out, a certain class of powerful electromagnetic waves in the radiation belts can scatter ultra-relativistic electrons. The electrons stream down along these waves, as if they are raining into the atmosphere. A team led by Yuri Shprits of University of California in Los Angeles published a paper summarizing these findings in  Nature Communications  on Sept. 28, 2016. 
Such information helps illustrate the complexity of Earth's magnetic surroundings.  Understanding changes within the belts is crucial for protecting the satellites and astronauts travelling through this sometimes harsh space environment.
