View Resource Geographical Distribution of Biomass Carbon in Tropical Southeast Asian Forests: A Database

This newly online database from the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) provides detailed geographically referenced information on "actual and potential biomass carbon (1 g biomass = 0.5 g C)" in tropical Southeast Asia (in 1980). These data are critical components of the larger effort to quantify the role of changing land use in greenhouse gas production. The database includes...
View Resource NASA Goddard Institute: Hansen and Sato 2001

The NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is under the direction of Dr. James Hansen, conducts basic research in space and earth sciences. A recent publication by Dr. Hansen and Mki. Sato, entitled Trends of Measured Climate Forcing Agents, found (in part) that a "remarkable deceleration in the growth rate of GHG climate forcing occurred in the past 20 years." The report explains...
