    and international scientific communities . . .more"

NASA Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite
Mission Operations

http://uarsfot08.gsfc.nasa.gov

    "In 1976, Congress amended the Space Act, directing NASA to undertake a comprehensive program of research into the upper atmosphere. The Upper Atmosphere Research Program was designed in response to that directive. The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS), a shuttle-launched, earth-orbiting observatory, is the center piece of that program . . .more"

Paleoclimatology and Climate Systems Dynamics
http://www.agu.org/revgeophys/overpe00/overpe00.html

    "The field of paleoclimatology, and more generally the broader field of ``paleo-science,'' has seen substantial growth and increased recognition over the past decade. The prime motivation for these trends has been the need for a long-term, or "paleo-perspective'' in understanding and assessing the environmental change that has been taking place and that will occur in the future. It is clear that climate varies substantially on all time scales, from seasons to millennia. It is also clear that the instrumental record of climate change is insufficient to observe and study how the climate system operates on time scales longer than a few decades, or under climatic forcing unlike that at present . . .more"
