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 atmosphere and other human activities (IPCC Sixth Assessment Report, 2021).

Scientists use observations from the ground, air, and space, along with theoretical models and scenarios of
