Ground-level measurements of atmospheric composition have been carried out for several decades, but analyzes based on data provided by satellites have allowed a full picture of the Earth’s atmosphere. Although the human eye can only see clouds in the sky, the measurement tools are able to determine the molecular composition of the air, so we can look at NASA’s recently published visualization of the accumulation and movement of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Developing global weather models and simulations is expected to better predict climate change in the future.
The GOES-5, a system of integrated models created by scientists from Goddard Space Flight Center, allows you to compile data from the Earth’s atmosphere. The above presentation was created after compilation of atmospheric conditions with natural greenhouse gas emissions and human activities. After entering the data the computer model was simulated based on the natural behavior of the atmosphere between January and December 2006.
