The Mauna Loa atmospheric CO2 measurements constitute the longest continuous record of atmospheric CO2 concentrations available in the world. The Mauna Loa site is considered one of the most favorable locations for measuring undisturbed air because possible local influences are minimal. Methods and equipment used to obtain these measurements have remained essentially unchanged during the 47-year monitoring ... Full description.

This lesson is designed to help students understand how the sun supplies almost all the energy we use, black body radiation, the balance between incoming solar energy and outgoing heat, and the greenhouse effect and gases that contribute to it. Students will discover that convection of heat in the atmosphere is the cause of weather phenomena and that water vapor also carries solar heat and plays an ... Full description.

This two-part radio broadcast first focuses on how scientists are re-evaluating their theories on how the Earth was formed, then on exploration for new life forms found in the sediments of ocean floors. By looking at volcanic hotspots, geologists can sample gases from deep inside the mantle of the Earth. These dissolved gases include particles from the solar wind and impacting asteroids. This broadcast ... Full description.
