Global Patterns of Carbon Dioxide - NASA

27-09-2013 · This close connection between climate and carbon is a compelling reason to keep track of carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere. The first space-based instrument to independently measure atmospheric carbon dioxide day and night, and under both clear and cloudy conditions over the entire globe, is the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite.

A misinterpreted claim about a NASA press release, CO2 ...

29-03-2013 · The importance of the NASA paper is that it recognizes that CO2 does block incoming IR from the sun. Something that is missing in most climate energy diagrams, including the one used in this article above. (carleton) Take a look at the energy “cartoon” show in the article. It shows incoming radiation as “absorbed by atmosphere 22.9”.

The Carbon Cycle - NASA

The time it takes carbon to move through the fast carbon cycle is measured in a lifespan. The fast carbon cycle is largely the movement of carbon through life forms on Earth, or the biosphere. Between 10 15 and 10 17 grams (1,000 to 100,000 million metric tons) of carbon move through the fast carbon ...

GMS: Rising CO2 Levels Greening Earth - NASA

Apr 25, 2016 · From a quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.

Causes | Facts – Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet

Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech It's reasonable to assume that changes in the Sun's energy output would cause the climate to change, since the Sun is the fundamental source of energy that drives our climate system. Indeed, studies show that solar variability has played a role in past climate changes. For example, a decrease in solar activity coupled ...
