A Team Of Scientists
At NASA has for the first time ever spotted regional fluctuations in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2)
This Has Happened
Across the globe due to emissions from human activities during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Using A Combination Of...
NASA Satellites and atmospheric modelling, including data from NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2)
The Team Measured
Drops in CO2 emissions during the Covid-19 pandemic from the space.
Previous Studies Investigated
The effects of lockdowns early in the pandemic and found that global CO2 levels dropped slightly in 2020.
The Results Represent A Leap
Forward for researchers studying regional effects of climate change and tracking results of mitigation strategies.
