The sun is just below the horizon in this photo and creates an orange-red glow above the Earth’s surface, which is the troposphere, or lowest layer of the atmosphere. The tropopause is the brown line along the upper edge of the troposphere. Above both are the stratosphere, higher atmospheric layers, and the blackness of space. Credit: NASA Johnson Space Center

Fifty-year climate trajectory classes based on global climate models for 2006-2100: a) assumes greenhouse gas emissions stabilize by 2100 and c) assumes emissions continue to increase, showing fewer areas of stability (green & white) and larger areas of species loss (dark blue).

In places where reactive immunization is used, a vaccination campaign begins when the number of cases in a region reaches the alert threshold, defined here as 5 cases per week per 100,000 inhabitants. This strategy depends on timely surveillance, and rapid response, which are difficult to achieve in less-developed countries. Source: World Health Organization

Top: Digitally compressed paintings produced by colourist P. Tetsis at the island of Hydra in June 2010 during and after the passage of a Saharan dust cloud. The painting on the left features a more aerosol-rich scene (more dust in the atmosphere) than the one on the right. Bottom: Digital camera photos of the landscape. The pictures shown were taken half-way through the painting process. Credit: P. Tetsis (paintings) and C. Zerefos (photos)
