View Resource The Carbon Cycle Science Program

The US Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) provides this site with the purpose of supplying "critical unbiased scientific information on the fate of carbon dioxide in the environment to contribute to the ongoing public dialogue." The USGCRP's focus for the fiscal year 2000 is on determining the location, magnitude, and use of carbon sinks in North America. Sections of the site include Current...
View Resource Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Record from Flask Measurements at Lampedusa Island

Air samples from Lampedusa Island, located south of Sicily in the Mediterranean sea, were collected weekly from May 1992 through December 2000 and analyzed for carbon dioxide content. "On the basis of annual averages calculated from monthly averages, CO2 levels at Lampedusa Island have risen from 360.80 in 1993 to 371.27 in 2000. The data show an average trend of +1.5 ppmv/y." The data from the...
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...
View Resource Seventh International Carbon Dioxide Conference

Organized by NOAA's Climate Monitoring and Diagnostic Laboratory (CMDL), the Seventh International Carbon Dioxide Conference is planned September 25-30 in Broomfield, Colo. At this website, scientists involved in various aspects of the global carbon cycle, especially the current increases of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, are encouraged to attend. Users can read the preliminary announcement and...
