NASA Carbon Dioxide Video Simulation
NASA shared a new, fascinating video of carbon dioxide circulation in earth. The ultra-high-resolution NASA computer model has given scientists a stunning new look at how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe.
Two things are clear. Carbon dioxide worst enemies are photosynthesis and wind. The other thing is that what goes around comes back around. C02 emissions travel all around the globe.
NASA. A Year In The Life of Earth’s CO2
The carbon dioxide visualization was produced by a computer model called GEOS-5. Created by scientists at NASA Goddard’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office. The video is part of a simulation called a “Nature Run”. The Nature Run ingests real data on atmospheric conditions and the emission of greenhouse gases and both natural and man-made particulates.
The model is then is left to run on its own and simulate the natural behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere. This Nature Run simulates May 2005 to June 2007. This of course is all possible thanks to supercomputers.
We need more photosynthesis on the face of the earth. Even if we fail to cut on CO2 emissions we can still count on more trees and flowers.
