The Impact of Climate Change Our planet is covered by a vast ocean of air. This layer of gases supports all life on earth. It holds clouds of water vapor to trap life giving rain and it’s a blanket that retains womb from the sun. That human activity is increasing the level of carbon dioxide in atmosphere, and it is holding more heat leading to unwanted changes too familiar with the pattern. The atmosphere is really a very fine layer covering the earth. In proportion, this is giving an onion stick in. Some variations in the atmosphere drive the wind that keeps the air and clouds circulating leading to variable weather. Over the past decade, new records in storm severity had been recorded, only to be exceeded a year or so later. More than 40,000 thunderstorms occur around the world each day. In United States, accurate weather records have been kept for around 200 years. Experts have noted an increase in the frequency as well as the severity of storms. This is consistent with scientific projections of how weather patterns will change as the atmosphere will not. The increasing temperature means clouds hold more moisture that leads to heavier down force and increase risk of flooding. Hurricane Katrina, that devastated New Orleans in 2005 was one of the five deadliest hurricanes in the history of United States, and was the third strongest hurricane on record to make land full air. Meteorologists are desperately trying to understand how changes to the planet will unfold. The UMETSET Headquarters coordinates information from a new satellite system designed to track global climate change. The weather satellites constructed and tested the damage that in Germany delivered great details on weather changes, as well as trace gases and moisture profiles for the atmosphere. The satellites monitored the world in weather organizations more information, and also act as an early warning system when extreme weather patterns are developing. Since it’s launched in 2006, meteor set aid has been providing atmospheric delta along with sea surface temperatures and sea ice concentrations. It can accurately measure temperatures at different levels in the atmosphere and represents a breakthrough in the global monitoring of the climate. The lack of observational coverage in the Pacific Ocean and consonants of the seven-hemisphere has led to the increasingly important role of polar orbiting satellites, able to over fly every pot of the earth. These polar orbiting satellites have able to observe the atmospheric system with microwave census that provide the improved coverage of the stratosphere. Microwaves penetrate cloud that block visible and infrared observations and they can probe the interior of clouds. Another satellite is monitoring wind direction. It uses a Laser system to measure currents on the atmosphere. It will provide accurate wind profiles for the entire planet including remote areas, lacking any ground based weather station. Up drafts in storm cells generate huge amounts of static electricity, we know as lightning. About 10% of storms featuring over abundance of moisture in the lower atmosphere, which fades enough draft with such bigger that it becomes greatly magnified and begins to rotate. In the most extreme cases, this can become tornadoes. These super cell storms can maintain an intense steady state for many hours, and actually exert control over the surrounding environment rather than being affected by it. The frequency of such extreme weather events is not only increasing but tornadoes are occurring over a broader range. But whoever got at this freak conditions, attach of a new normality. And scientists are filling the skies with more complex monitoring satellites that help deliver more accurate weather forecasts. Current satellite technology relays images of the earth every half hour. MSG1 will double that speed and rely back higher resolution pictures and 20-times more dotted for a more accurate weather service. The new satellite gauge
