atmospheric composition

[¦at·mə¦sfir·ik ‚käm·pə′zish·ən]
(meteorology)
The chemical abundance in the earth's atmosphere of its constituents, including nitrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon dioxide, water vapor, ozone, neon, helium, krypton, methane, hydrogen, and nitrous oxide.

'CAMP2Ex provides a much-needed crucible for satellite observing systems and model predictions to monitor and understand how atmospheric composition and weather interact,' Reid was quoted in the US Embassy press release.
"CAMP2Ex provides a much-needed crucible for satellite observing systems and model predictions to monitor and understand how atmospheric composition and weather interact." Reid said aerosol-cloud dynamics have a profound impact on weather and climate but there are large uncertainties in how those dynamics affect climate.
Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) research meteorologist Jeffrey Reid said CAMP2Ex would help in understanding atmospheric composition and weather predictions.
TOI-270 appears to be an older M-dwarf that has since quieted down, giving off a steady brightness, against which scientists can measure many properties of the orbiting planets, such as their mass and atmospheric composition.
The book is a glinting ice core pulled from the earth, revealing mystery and memory just as ice reveals historical temperatures and atmospheric composition. Like the book, 'ice is a recording medium and a storage medium.' Macfarlane is our shaman and guide as we communicate with the 'dead and the buried, across gulfs of deep time' from the early universe to the Anthropocene.
Prof Hugh Coe, head of the School of it was we could tastes and metal Vayro, head Atmospheric Composition at Manchester University said: "It's without doubt one of the biggest public health problems facing Greater Manchester.
* Atmospheric Composition: carbon dioxide, methane, other long-lived gases, ozone
This supported the idea that atmospheric composition was a lot different back in the day.
The monitored brightness of the stars will then allow researchers to use spectroscopy to find out the planer's mass, density and atmospheric composition.
Homeyer's research is the first concept of its kind to take ground-based radar observations of storms and link them to satellite observations of trace gases to better understand the characteristics of storms and how they modify the atmospheric composition. We are applying methods to discriminate between air masses that recently have been modified by storms and those air masses that have not been impacted by storms, said Homeyer, assistant professor and associate director for undergraduate studies, School of Meteorology, OU College of Atmospheric Sciences.
Tracking the growth and migration of cells under hypoxic conditions in vitro can be challenging because measurements must be made in a manner that does not perturb the atmospheric composition of the closed system.
