If there is a significant haze layer
on top of the fog, it appears brownish.
The presence of these complex, ringed hydrocarbons, known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), explains the origin of the aerosol particles found in the lowest haze layer
that blankets Titan's surface.
Also, a haze layer
surrounding Titan at the northern pole is significantly reduced during the equinox because of the atmospheric circulation patterns.
Scientists suspect that shifting seasons are accompanied by changing atmospheric patterns, and the collapsing haze layer
could be one of a constellation of seasonal cycles.
Set to launch this week on Apple's iTunes Store via the free-to-download Viddy application, the Snoop Pack, custom-crafted for Snoop Dogg by the team at Viddy, features original graphics, created to imitate a smoky haze layer
, along with a signature Snoop instrumental track.
Unfortunately, they could not find any clear air, and, after our rendezvous, we were in a haze layer
Last summer, a team of scientists funded by the National Science Foundation began a $25 million surveillance of the Indian Ocean and discovered a huge haze layer
covering 10 million square miles, approximately the size of the continental United States.
A Scripps spokesman, said there was a brownish haze layer
over the Indian Ocean almost 1,000 miles off the coast.
A person in a balloon in Titan's haze layer
wouldn't see the glow because it's too faint-something like a millionth of a watt.
To confirm that amino acids and nucleotide bases are actually produced in Titan's atmosphere will require another orbiter that can carry instruments 100 to 200 kilometers deeper than Cassini does into Titan's haze layer
, Lunine says.
The actual slant-range visibility through a haze layer
was more like 3 miles, so by the time we saw the field, we were too high for a safe approach to runway 23.
Also, the emissions are unaffected by the haze layer
produced by the eruption of Mt.
