This is a visualisation of current CO₂ levels in Earth's atmosphere (red is less, blue is more).
Earth's two largest rainforests are the Congo and the Amazon, and they show up here as very obvious red patches. Between them, they pull so much CO₂ out of the atmosphere that it affects the entire Southern Hemisphere!
@InvaderXan Wow, this is amazing 😮
I'd guess they're from regions with irrigation farming. That or it's the earliest signs of northern hemisphere plant life properly waking up.
But I'm not entirely sure.
One nice thing is: you can move years back in data AND some days (not all parameters) to future based on weather/climate modelling output
@InvaderXan This is a great visualization
It really is!
No. The darker redbrown color indicate lower, bright brown-yellow color mean & blue color high CO2 value.
The darker redbrown area is the Amazonas, the green lung of earth with relativ low CO2 measured. But you can see 2 blue dots in the upper left area-it indicates local CO2 spots - may be by burning rain forests. It started at 3.Apr.2019. Click into the map to get the values.
