Record #165487:

Are noctilucent clouds truly a "miner's canary" for global change? / Ulf von Zahn.

Title: Are noctilucent clouds truly a "miner's canary" for global change? / Ulf von Zahn.
Author(s): Zahn, Ulf von.
Date: 2003.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (2003.), Vol. 84(28) (2003)
Abstract: Questions proposed used of these clouds as indicators of global change by G.E. Thomas and J. Olivero, Advances in Space Research, 2001, 28 :937-946. Suggests that such use is made problematic by three factors: 1. occurrence and brightness of clouds has shown rather large variability over past century; 2. no discernible alterations in altitude; and 3. even should changes be observed difficult to establish whether due to natural or anthropogenic causes.
Notes:
