“There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.” Mark Twain
Still believe there is no anthropogenic activity involved in global warming? Well you won’t think so after watching this video!
An ultra-high-resolution NASA computer model has given scientists a stunning new look at how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe. Plumes of carbon dioxide in the simulation swirl and shift as winds disperse the greenhouse gas away from its sources.
The carbon dioxide visualization was produced by a computer model called GEOS-5, created by scientists at NASA Goddard’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office. In particular, the visualization is part of a simulation called a “Nature Run.” The Nature Run ingests real data on atmospheric conditions and the emission of greenhouse gases and both natural and man-made particulates. The model is then is left to run on its own and simulate the natural behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere. This Nature Run simulates May 2005 to June 2007.

Global warming is generally reflected as increase in radiation budget or increase in the green house gases or decrease in albedo created by glacial ice.
The temperature rise can be easily reflected in the retreat of glaciers. The calving process is common now a days. These are the pictures which proves the global temperature rise.

Hello friends. I am sharing some beautiful images from my recent visit to shimla for a national conference on glaciology. Shimla (himachal pradesh) is situated on the pir panjal mountain range of himalaya. The beauty is quite spectacular. I didn’t had much time to go around and look for rocks (as a geologist i should) but we travelled to taradevi temple and of course mall road. The parathas and apples are quite amazing.
Always link this blog while sharing these pictures. Thankyou.
