CarbonTracker is a system that calculates carbon dioxide uptake and release at the Earth's surface over time. It estimates the carbon dioxide exchange from an 'atmospheric point of view'. Since CO2 mole fractions in the atmosphere reflect the sum of all the CO2 exchange at the surface, they form the ultimate record of the combined human and natural influence on greenhouse gas levels ...

Review and Atlas of Palaeovegetation

Preliminary land ecosystem maps of the world since the Last Glacial Maximum. A set of preliminary, broad-scale ecosystem map reconstructions is presented for the world at the Last Glacial Maximum (18,000 14C years ago) and the early Holocene (8,000 14C years ago), the mid Holocene (5,000 14C years ago) and for comparison 'present-potential' maps that may be regarded as approximating the late Holocene vegetation distribution as it would - or might - have been without agricultural modification. The maps were produced through consultation with an extensive network of experts and a range of literature and map sources, with the final decision in each case made by the editors. Accompanying each regional map is a general background text detailing the principal sources of evidence and the major uncertainties within this ... More Information

US Geothermal Projects and Resource Areas

US map showing where the direct use projects are located. This is a clickable map where you can find information concerning each direct use site. Just click on a state to get information for that state or click on the Direct Use icons at the bottom to get a listing of all the projects for that direct use ... More Information

NOAA Thermal Springs Geothermal Website

The Thermal Springs List is available on-line as a Virtual Map of Thermal Springs, an experiment in Web-based mapping. You'll need a high speed connection for this. Geothermal energy is heat derived from Earth's interior. Resources may include hot springs and wells, hot dry rock, and even molten rock. These may be converted into heat and electricity ...

The National Digital Forecast

The National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) is a database put together by the National Weather Service (NWS) to provide forecasts of sensible weather elements (e.g., cloud cover, maximum temperature) on a seamless grid. The NDFD is currently given out to the public as a GRIB2 file ... More Information

Climate Change and Sea Level

Maps of Susceptible Areas - Shoreline geomorphology, erosion, deposition, and subsidence, tide range and wave height, engineered structures such as jetties and seawalls, and elevation above sea level are some of the many factors that determine the degree to which a coastal area is susceptible to sea level rise. Of these, elevation data are available for any location of the globe and are very effective in depicting and communicating to the public areas that may be susceptible to sea level rise...

Map of Early Warning Signs

The map of early warning signs clearly illustrates the global nature of climate changes. In its 2001 assessment, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded that, ?an increasing body of observations gives a collective picture of a warming world and other changes in the climate system."

While North America and Europe�where the science is strongest�exhibit the highest density of indicators, scientists have made a great effort in recent years to document the early impacts of global warming on other continents. Our map update reflects this emerging knowledge from all parts of the world... More Information

Teaching Materials for Map of Early Warning Signs

This set of teaching materials is designed to accompany Global Warming: Early Warning Signs - a science-based world map depicting the local and regional consequences of global climate change. The map was produced as a collaborative project by several environmental organizations, and has been peer-reviewed by scientists.

The Union of Concerned Scientists produced this Curriculum Guide. Geared towards students and teachers in grades 9-12, individual exercises are adaptable to different grade levels. Each activity is structured to include an initial ?Engagement? exercise, one or more steps of a Student ?Exploration? project, and further ideas for extended study. The materials align with National Learning Standards for Science, Geography, Social Studies, Language Arts, Environmental Education, and Technology... More Information

The Atlas of Canada: Climate Change

Over the past 150 years, abundant scientific data has demonstrated that the earth's climate has become warmer, and that the warming has been accelerating over the past two decades. This change in the climate has become a global issue of concern. This map series aims to provide policy makers, researchers and the general public with a geographical perspective to climate change. The series also attempts to integrate human activities and the environment, and links science and government policy... More Information
