National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration  Popular
Description: Although NOAA was formed in 1970, the agencies that came together at that time are among the oldest in the Federal Government. The agencies included the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey formed in 1807, the Weather Bureau formed in 1870, and the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries formed in 1871. Individually these organizations were America's first physical science agency, America's first agency dedicated specifically to the atmospheric sciences, and America's first conservation agency. Much of America's scientific heritage resides in these agencies. They brought their cultures of scientific accuracy and precision, stewardship of resources, and protection of life and property to the newly formed agency.

Integrating Worldwide CO2 Flux Measurements  Popular

FLUXNET, a "network of regional networks," coordinates regional and global analysis of observations from micrometeorological tower sites. The flux tower sites use eddy covariance methods to measure the exchanges of carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor, and energy between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere.

At present, over 250 tower sites are operating on a long-term and continuous basis. Researchers also collect data on site vegetation, soil, hydrologic, and meteorological characteristics at the tower sites. To search for flux or site characteristics data, choose "Obtain Data" from the menu above.

Global Warming Facts & Our Future  Popular

Climate Warming Is a Global Problem

But the impacts and potential solutions will affect us locally and in many different ways. The challenge for each of us and for our policy makers is to pursue effective responses that are as fair as possible to all people and nations.

In this exhibition the National Academies provide scientific information to help us make informed decisions and to help answer some important questions.

    Finnish Meteorological Institute  Popular
    Description: The predecessor of the Finnish Meteorological Institute, the Magnetic Observatory of Helsinki University, was founded as early as 1838.

    Meteorological observations were included in the work of the Observatory from the very beginning; later, in 1881, the Society of Sciences assumed responsibility for the operations, and official name was changed to the Meteorological Central Office, under which name the Institute began to prepare daily weather information for the newspapers of Helsinki in 1885.

    In 1919 the FMI became a research institute under the Ministry of Agriculture and later on, in 1968, it was transferred to the Ministry of Transport and Communications.

    Carbon Cycle Science Program  Popular
    Description: The USGCRP budget includes $221 million in FY 2002 for research and observations related to understanding the global carbon cycle. Carbon is important as the basis for thefood and fiber that sustain human populations, as the primary energy source that fuels human economies, and as a major contributor to the planetary greenhouse effect and the potential for climate change. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) concentration have been increasing in the atmosphere, primarily as a result of human use of fossil fuels and land clearing, and are now higher than they have been for at least 400,000 years. Of the CO2 emitted to the atmosphere, about half is currently taken up as part of the natural cycling of carbon into the ocean, and into land plants and soils. These reservoirs of carbon are known as carbon “sinks.” Changes in land management practices and the addition of CO2 and nutrients are known to have the potential to enhance significantly the uptake of carbon, particularly by forests and croplands.

    NOAA Paleoclimatology Program 
    Description: NOAA works closely with the international PAGES/ CLIVAR initiative to improve our understanding of societally relevant climate variability and our ability to predict future climate change. NOAA contributes to the PAGES/CLIVAR initiative by supporting the World Data Center for Paleoclimatology, and by providing extramural support (jointly with the National Science Foundation) for the Earth System History Program area of special emphasis on paleoclimate variability
