[Claude F Boutron; European Research Course on Atmospheres.;]. [1] The processes in the atmosphere, interior, surface, and near‐space environment that together maintain the climate on Venus are examined from the specific point of view of the advances that are possible with new data from Venus Express and improved evolutionary climate models.

Particular difficulties, opportunities, and prospects for the next generation of missions to Venus are Cited by: Venus may have had a shallow liquid-water ocean and habitable surface temperatures for up to 2 billion years of its early history, according to computer modeling of the planet’s ancient climate by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

The year marks the thirtieth anniversary of the development of the first regional climate model (RCM), and here an overview is provided of the progress in regional modeling research and of the main challenges lying by: Incorporation of new microphysical models into regional scale and global scale circulation models can then be used to study feedbacks between microphysics, chemistry, and the momentum and energy.

Abstract The concept of a sealed, limp balloon filled with steam and floating in stable equilibrium in the atmosphere of the planet Venus is introduced and analyzed. The stable altitude is shown to Cited by: 3. In the context of an International Space Science Institute(ISSI) working group, we have conducted a project to compare the most recent General Circulation Models (GCMs) of the Venus atmospheric circulation.

A common configuration has been decided, with simple physical parametrization for the solar forcing and the boundary layer scheme.

Six models have been used in this intercomparison project. Author/Curator: Dr. David R. Williams, [email protected] NSSDCA, Mail Code NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Greenbelt, MD +   This paper presents an overview of changes in the extreme events that are most likely to affect Europe in forthcoming decades.

A variety of diagnostic methods are used to determine how heat waves, heavy precipitation, drought, wind storms, and storm surges change between present (–90) and future (–) climate on the basis of regional climate model simulations produced by the Cited by:   At first glance, a weather forecaster for Venus would have either a really easy or a really boring job, depending on your point of view.

The climate on Venus is widely known to be unpleasant -- at the surface, the planet roasts at more than degrees Fahrenheit under a suffocating blanket of sulfuric acid clouds and a crushing atmosphere more than 90 times the pressure of Earth's.

Venus may have had a shallow liquid-water ocean and habitable surface temperatures for up to 2 billion years of its early history, according to computer modeling of the planet’s ancient climate by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York.

The findings, published this week in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, were obtained with a model similar to the. Japan has also shown interest in studying Venus by sending a Venus Climate Orbiter (VCO) in the year of [16] to intensively study the climate of Venus.

InJapan Aerospace Exploration. Doctoral Dissertations. The following citations are to dissertations written by graduate students who performed their doctoral research at NASA/GISS. This list is not From regional climate modelling to the exploration of Venus book and is most notably missing some dissertations prior to Gao, Y., The Impact of Organic Aerosol Volatility on Particle Microphysics and Global Climate.

Despite the tremendous progress that has been made since the publication of the Venus II book inmany fundamental questions remain concerning Venus’ history, evolution and current geologic and atmospheric processes.

The international science community has taken several approaches to prioritizing these questions, either through formal processes like the Planetary Decadal Survey in Cited by: 4.

The recent advent of Regional Climate Models (RCMs), limited area models nested within GCMs, has greatly improved spatial representation, and brings outputs much closer to the scale required for reliable flood modelling. A new set of climate scenarios for the UK were recently released by the UK Climate Impacts Programme (Hulme et al., Cited by: This is an good book for the scientifically minded interested in Venus.

It starts from the outside and works in peeling back the layers of Venus like an onion. It makes a clear distinction between the accepted facts and the still debated theories.

It is a little out of date, but is an excellent place to start.5/5(2). Observations of the planet Venus include those in antiquity, telescopic observations, and from visiting spacecraft. Spacecraft have performed various flybys, orbits, and landings on Venus, including balloon probes that floated in the atmosphere of of the planet is aided by its relatively close proximity to the Earth, compared to other planets, but the surface of Venus is obscured.

11, Venus may have had a shallow liquid-water ocean and habitable surface temperatures for up to 2 billion years of its early history, according to computer modeling of the planet's ancient climate by scientists at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New.

Venus may once have had a climate similar to that of Earth, with moderate temperatures, water oceans, and much of its CO 2 dissolved in the ocean or chemically combined with the surface rocks. Then we allow for modest additional heating—by gradual increase in the energy output of the Sun, for example.

Projections of ground-level O 3 were developed on a 36×36 km grid over the New York City metropolitan area by linking models for global climate, regional climate, and regional air quality. 24–27 Such linkages are necessary to be able to project local future conditions and have been used previously for future health projections.
