TIMED Satellite: Find Trends in Carbon-Dioxide Levels

Human activities like deforestation and burning fossil fuels are pumping huge amounts of carbon dioxide into the Earth's atmosphere. NASA has analyzed 14 years worth of data collected by its Thermosphere, Inonosphere, Mesosphere Energetics and Dynamics (TIMED) satellite, revealing a surprisingly fast increase in carbon dioxide levels in the upper atmosphere. The stats also reveal that the gas is more localized to the Northern Hemisphere than predicted by climate models.

TIMED's radiometer reveals that CO2 levels in the region, some 70 miles (113 km) above the Earth's surface, are increasing at a much faster rate of 12 percent per decade.
