Comment on this resource
In this textbook chapter, students examine the data from Mauna Loa to see that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is increasing. The seasonal signal observed in the data is explained by the growth cycle of plants in the Northern Hemisphere. Pre-industrial records of atmospheric becomes COČ are presented as evidence of the role of humans in increasing becomes COČ concentrations. ... Full description.
