The brilliant folks at NASA have created a video showing carbon dioxide as it travels through our atmosphere for a year. Click on the embedded video to view it. The video models not quite a full near, starting in mid-November, 2014.
The data used to create the video comes from NASA’s OCO-2, a satellite that monitors carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. It is not the first video NASA has created to show CO2 in the atmosphere, but it is the first one in 3-D.
