"The Philippines is not emitting carbon dioxide but it's going to be the biggest victim of climate change," Dr. Josefino Comiso told a briefing organized by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in Manila last year.
Comiso, a senior scientist at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said the country is very vulnerable to a warming climate because it's home to a high diversity of species. He also echoed observations by climate experts that the Philippines was vulnerable to a rise in sea level and stronger storms as an offshoot of global warming. "We've been having longer and heavier rainfall in the previous years. That may be associated with global warming," he said in an interview with the Inquirer. "If you have a warmer ocean, you get more evaporation. You also get stronger typhoons in the process," he added. Comiso, who has made several studies on climate change, visited Manila last year to share his knowledge with the academe under the Balik-Scientist Program of the DOST.

"The changes from year to year are interesting since there has been large variability," said Josefino Comiso, a sea ice expert at NASA Goddard.
"But we need to look at several years of data to examine the long-term trends." "Our three decades of continuous satellite measurements show a rapid decline of about 11.6 percent per decade," Comiso said. "The oceans are crucial to Earth's climate system, since they store huge amounts of heat," said Comiso. "Changes in sea ice cover can lead to circulation changes not just in the Arctic Ocean, but also in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. If you change ocean circulation, you change the world's climate." Changes in the Arctic ice cover could also mean a new paradigm for life in the sea. "The waters at high latitudes are some of the most biologically productive in the world because of the presence of sea ice," Comiso added.

Probably unknown to many Filipinos, countryman Dr. Josefino "Joey" C. Comiso, is a senior research scientist at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the US.
The Manila Bulletin met Comiso when he came home for a few days to deliver a paper at the recent 2015 Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS) in Manila. He presented a paper on "Remote Sensing Challenges in Monitoring Climate Change, Resilience and Growth" in the final day's plenary session before over local and international participants from 40 countries.

"Winds off the Ross Ice Shelf are getting stronger and stronger, and that causes the sea ice to be pushed off the coast, which generates areas of open water, polynyas," said Josefino Comiso, a senior scientist at NASA Goddard.

Dr. Josefino Comiso of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said that satellite imagery comes from their Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), which can provide data measuring land-vegetation index, oceanic parameters such as sea surface temperature, ocean color, and many others due to its ability to capture data in 36 spectral bands.
