---- Monthly Snow/Ice Averages----- September Arctic sea ice is now declining at a rate of 11.5 percent per decade, relative to the 1979 to 2000 average. Data from NASA show that the land ice shee...
ts in both Anarctica and Greenland are losing mass. The continent of Antarctica (left chart) has been losing more than 100 cubic kilometers (24 cubic miles) of ice per year since 2002. The International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) was established in 1982 as part of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) to collect and analyze the global distribution of clouds, their properties, and their diurnal, seasonal, and interannual variations. This research includes snow and ice datat that can provide insight into the Land and Artic Ice issues that are being investigated.
------ Monthly Carbon Dioxide in Troposphere (AIRS on AQUA) -----Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an important greenhouse gas released through natural processes such as respiration and volcano eruptions and through huma activities such as deforestation and burning fossil fuels. AIRS is the Atmospheric InfraRed Sounder, AIRS, was launched aboard the Aqua Spacecraft in 2002 as part of NASA’s Earth Observing System Afternoon Constellation of satellites known as the ‘A-Train’.
---- SEA LEVEL (TOPEX/POSEIDON) ---- Sea level rise is caused by the thermal expansion of sea water due to climate warming and widespread melting of land ice. The TOPEX/POSEIDON mission a joint satellite mission between NASA and the French space agency CNES, which operated between 1992 and 2005 to collect ocean surface and sea level data to support the mission of understanding ocean circulation.
---- Monthly Near-Surface Air Temperature Averages ---- Global surface temperatures in 2010 tied 2005 as the warmest on record. The International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) was established in 1982 as part of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) to collect and analyze the global distribution of clouds, their properties, and their diurnal, seasonal, and interannual variations. The LAS provides data for Monthly Near-Surface Air Temperature Averages from 1994 to 2008.
