Electricity Supply shutdown
in Other
Due to an electricity supply shutdown at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (23-24 March 2002), 
the BADC  File server (tornado) will be consequently temporarily shutdown from 
Friday 22th March at 4pm to Sunday 24th March. The BADC file server is expected 
to be back online from Monday 25th March.

This shutdown unfortunately implies that the BADC Web site and access to data 
and services will be temporarily unavailable.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Met Office Stratospheric Data - now using OPERH identifiers
============================================================

The Middle Atmosphere Group at the Met Office has changed the data
assimilation model to include a bug fix that corrects a persistent
singularity over the South Pole in the stratosphere. It is only a minor
change, but as of yesterday's (26 Feb 2002) 12Z run, the assimilation
identifier has been changed from OPERG to OPERH (e.g. ppassm_operh_y02_m02_d26_h12.pp )

If you require any more details on this change, please contact the BADC
in a first instance. 

Thank You.

"NASA unveils new 'NATURAL HAZARDS' web site"
in Satellite data

NASA UNVEILS NEW 'NATURAL HAZARDS' WEB SITE

NASA unveiled a new Web site today in which it publishes satellite
images in near real time over natural hazards around the world.  A
new addition to NASA's Earth Observatory, the Natural Hazards section, 
contains images and information about major environmental events that 
are potentially hazardous to human populations.

Initially, the Earth Observatory team will track five categories of
natural hazards: wildfires, severe storms, floods, volcanic
eruptions, and major air pollution events (dust storms, smog, and
smoke).  The images-acquired by NASA Earth Science Enterprise and
Earth Observing System (EOS) satellite missions-are freely available
to the public as well as news media.

"We are pleased to be able to share these spectacular new images with
the world in a timely manner," said Michael King, EOS senior project
scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.  "We are often able
to publish these images within a matter of hours after they are
acquired by the satellite sensors."

"We believe the combination of high quality and moderate to high
resolution of the scenes we publish demonstrates the significant
technological advancements NASA has made in the design of satellite
remote sensors," King continued.  "We hope the public finds the
images informative as well as useful for educational purposes."

Earth scientists around the world use NASA satellite imagery to
better understand the causes and effects of natural hazards. The goal
in sharing these new images in the Earth Observatory is to help
people visualize where and when natural hazards occur, and to
possibly help mitigate their effects.

There are plans to expand the section's scope to include other types
of natural hazards information, such as earthquakes, coastal erosion,
and landslides.  The Earth Observatory is managed by the EOS Project
Science Office, and funded by NASA's Earth Science Enterprise.

The Earth Science Enterprise is a long-term research program
dedicated to understanding how human-induced and natural changes
affect our global environment.
