The researchers have also advanced toward vertically profiling two other high-interest features of the lower troposphere: aerosols and temperature.
This work was conceived to investigate the variability in the values of the received signal strength of DTT signal and the possible influence of meteorological parameters in the troposphere on the signal using some Nigerian Cities in different climatic zones as case studies.
Most of the models show that global warming will lead to increased WV in the upper troposphere and that this increase will further promote climate warming: in other words, WV has a strong positive feedback effect [10-13].
It shows that the method discussed in the paper is effective, which can mainly eliminate the distance precision loss caused by Troposphere atmospheric refraction and Ionosphere atmospheric refraction.
But the upper troposphere is also much colder than the lower troposphere, achieving the same effect of drying out the high ozone air pockets.
Scientists have detected a monstrous new cloud of frozen compounds in the moon's low- to mid-stratosphere -- a stable atmospheric region above the troposphere, or active weather layer.
The measurements which are mainly taken in the troposphere and the lower stratosphere, allow the team to analyse the ozone chemistry and the exchange of air pollutants.
Rapid urbanization and other anthropogenic activities are quickly disturbing the natural biodiversity and processes of the atmosphere, hydrosphere and troposphere that took millions of years to develop.
Troposcatter technology bounces microwave radio transmissions off of the Earth's troposphere. This allows long-distance, beyond line-of-sight communications, even over rocky or hilly terrain that would block other point-to-point communications techniques.
Scientists at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science have confirmed that the increased water vapour level in the upper troposphere is a result of human activities.
This sector is currently the greatest net contributor to climate change when the contributions of vehicle emissions to the formation of ozone in the troposphere are considered.
They also reflect a portion of the long-wave radiation (heat) coming back up from the surface, and that heats the top of the troposphere.
