FEARLESSFRONT.COM In 2019 NASA Earth Science will launch five new science campaigns to investigate some of Earth’s most pressing research questions, such as the cause of intense East Coast snow storms and the impact of ocean currents on global climate. For one of these projects, they’re calling on the expertise of the researchers at Texas A&M University. Texas A&M and Harvard University are teaming up to collect important atmospheric data from a high-altitude NASA aircraft to study the impact of strong storms on the stratosphere. “Dynamics and Chemistry of the Summer Stratosphere” will investigate how storms can carry chemical pollutants into the lower atmospheric layer, potentially affecting the ozone. As storms become stronger and more destructive, this kind of information is invaluable for keeping the earth and its inhabitants safe. It’s another way that the Aggies at Texas A&M are GOING HIGHER TO DIG DEEPER ENVISIONING ON EVERY FRONT.
