John Grunsfeld, Associate Administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, said that the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope will be able to make important observations of the atmospheres of exoplanets. [ Photos: The James Webb Space Telescope ] He said JWST won’t be able to locate the exoplanets, only study them, but the recently selected TESS mission could act as a planet scout for JWST targets.

Higgs alone is not primates and any system shocked at the brazen. This link takes you away from Space Place, but it's very easy to come back! I use a copyrighted handout that lists the controls for both temperature and precipitation, then asks questions that review the concept, then applies it to an imaginary continent. This introductory on-line course presents Earth�s climate system and explores the science and politics of global climate change.

The paper describes an effort to identify and propagate social and environmental projects that could reverse a centuries-long pattern in which human prosperity has come at the cost of substantial harm to ecosystems and excluded communities. Analysis of costs and benefits is a critical aspect of decisions about technology. (HS-ESS2-2) Connections to other DCIs in this grade-band: Articulation of DCIs across grade-bands: Common Core State Standards Connections: Students who demonstrate understanding can: Analyze geoscience data to make the claim that one change to Earth's surface can create feedbacks that cause changes to other Earth systems. [Clarification Statement: Examples should include climate feedbacks, such as how an increase in greenhouse gases causes a rise in global temperatures that melts glacial ice, which reduces the amount of sunlight reflected from Earth's surface, increasing surface temperatures and further reducing the amount of ice.

Life has tenaciously clung to this small blue planet for the last three billion years. Everest still reaches less than halfway through the troposphere. The quality and quantity of fresh water sources is being severely affected by climate change, be it by changing amounts of precipitation or extreme weather events. Atmospheric concentrations of some of the gases that produce the greenhouse effect are increasing due to human activity and most of the world's climate scientists consider that this is a significant part of the cause of observed climate change.

Within the tropical wet zone, the weather remains hot and muggy, with frequent rainfall and little temperature variation. An ever-increasing number of these subduction zone complexes contain evidence that eclogites were subducted to depths in the upper mantle where pressures are great enough to form microscopic diamond (>100 km or >70 miles) thus making them ultrahigh-pressure rocks. On average cleaning away the naturally arriving dust delayed snow-melt by 11 days.
