Introduction to NASA Resources for Climate Change Applications

September 29 & October 6 - 11:00 to 13:00 ET and 15:00 to 17:00 ET

Since the pre-industrial period, human activities are estimated to have increased Earth’s global average temperature by about 1.1 degree Celsius (IPCC, 2021), a number that is currently increasing by 0.2 degrees Celsius per decade (GISTEMP Team, 2021). The increase in global average temperature is driven by increased carbon dioxide emissions into the...
