The Global Carbon Atlas is an online platform to explore, visualize and interpret global and regional carbon data arising from both human activities and natural processes. The graphics and data sources are made available in the belief that their wide dissemination will lead to new knowledge and better-informed decisions to limit and cope with human-induced climate change.
The Global Carbon Atlas is a community effort under the umbrella of the Global Carbon Project based on the contributions of many research institutions and individual scientists around the world who make available observations, models, and interpretation skills.
The Global Carbon Project is part of the Earth System Science Partnership which aims to foster international cooperation in carbon cycle research. It produces an annual report which includes data about the exchange of carbon dioxide resulting from human activity.
