Remote Sensing C

Postby whythelongface » September 6th, 2017, 5:38 pm

Welcome to the 2018 Remote Sensing Question Marathon!
Short event description: Participants will use remote sensing imagery, data, and computational process skills to complete tasks related to climate change processes in the Earth system.

Please remember to use the spoilers to mask your answer. That way, other people can participate in the marathon as well!

I'll start with an easy one: Give two examples each of carbon sources and sinks.

Congratulations to WW-P South for winning 14th place at Nationals!

2 carbon sources are factories and car emissions, and 2 carbon sinks are the ocean and fossil fuels such as coal.

Another simple one:

How do clouds effect the amount of sunlight to reach earth's surface. Then identify and define the related term.

Clouds reflect/absorb incoming solar radiation, largely caused by high albedo, the percentage of light reflected. This reduces the amount of light that reaches the surface.

Why is it so hard to identify the source material of an aerosol in most air samples?

Why is it so hard to identify the source material of an aerosol in most air samples?
Aerosols undergo numerous physical and chemical changes over time, affecting their size, composition, and structure. This can make it difficult to identify the original source.
