How science works : chasing the wind( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is global warming human-driven? Can its effects be accurately measured? What are its long-term consequences? According to Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock, a renowned British space scientist, the only way to answer those questions is through rigorous observation. In this program, Dr. Aderin-Pocock describes her work with the Aeolus satellite project. Named after the "keeper of the winds" in ancient Greek mythology, Aeolus represents the first-ever opportunity to directly observe Earth's wind patterns from space. The data it generates will not only lead to more sophisticated weather predictions-as Dr. Aderin-Pocock makes clear, it will also facilitate more informed debate about climate change
