GoAir is an Indian low-cost airline based in Mumbai, is owned by the Indian business conglomerate Wadia October it was the fifth largest airline in India with an % passenger market share. It commenced operations in November and operates a fleet of Airbus A aircraft in all economy configuration. As of March , the airline operates over Headquarters: Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. The upper graph is the continuous record of monthly-mean, global atmospheric CO, concentrations measured at ML(). Data prior to May are from the program initiated in by Charles D. Keeling, Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The annual spingtime drawdown in C02 concentration is apparent in the figure. Featured in this book was a detailed description of a manned lunar landing and return, using the direct ascent technique. In the same year the Technicolor film "Destination Moon" went into production. Again the direct ascent mode was used in a four-man lunar landing mission. The movie premiered in New York City in Time series data revealed large-scale processes and features that During the International Geophysical Year (IGY) of could not have been discovered by other ways. Prior to the , 67 nations cooperated in an unprecedented effort availability of satellite-based observations, scientists seek- to study the Earth.
A noteworthy stride forward came when President Dwight D. Eisenhower endorsed an arrangement to circle a logical satellite as a major aspect of the International Geophysical Year (IGY) for the period, July 1, , to Decem , an agreeable push to accumulate logical information about the Earth.

Data other than current station information. Upper air RAOB data can be displayed as soundings. You can access RAOB data as soundings either from remote ADDE servers (using the Point Observations->Soundings->Remote chooser, pictured below) or from local files (using the Point Observations->Soundings->Local chooser).
The only difference between these two choosers is specifying the source of data. Global averages from radiosonde data are available from to present, while satellite measurements date back to The mid-troposphere temperatures are centered in the in the atmospheric layer approximately 3–10 km [2–6 miles] above the Earth's surface, which also includes a portion of the lower stratosphere.

Background. Beacon was an International Geophysical Year (IGY) satellite program developed by the NACA's Space Vehicle Group at Langley under aeronautical engineer William James O'Sullivan, Jr. O'Sullivan held the belief that measuring the air density at orbital altitudes would be of critical importance to a space agency and that a simple balloon satellite, several meters in Country/ies of origin: United States.
This text, written at a level accessible to advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, covers all aspects of flight performance of modern day high-performance aircraft, from take-off to landing, through different phases of flight in climb, cruise, turning and descent.

Lifted Index upper air data Reference Weather Map: Current Weather Map: These panels show the most recent observations of lifted index. The lifted index is a sounding variable, meaning that it is a single value at each location, and does not change from one level to another.
The first true sounding rocket - built for no other purpose than upper air research - was the GALCIT-JPL Wac Corporal, mentioned earlier in Chapter II. Begun as a meteorological rocket to meet Army Signal Corps requirements, the Wac Corporal was about 5 m (16 ft) long, had an Aerojet liquid-propellant motor, weighed about kg ( lb) at.

The first orbital flight of an artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, was launched in Octoberby the Soviet Union.
In November, the second orbital flight took place. The Soviet Union launched the first animal to orbit the Earth, a dog, Laika, who died in orbit a few hours after launch.

A key development in the history of atmospheric ozone research was the International Geophysical Year (IGY) in In preparation for the IGY, the British Antarctic Survey station at Halley Bay was set up.
This station would later become important for its long series of measurements leading up to the discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole. At left is my photo of this hangar.
