Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet


NASA's Global Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet website features a diverse set of resources related to the measurement, analysis, and dangers of global climate change.  Interactive features include the Climate Time Machine, which allows users to go backward and forward through four different climate indicators including Sea Ice, Sea Level, Carbon Dioxide, and Global Temperature.  Other resources include the water cycle, a virtual tour, and more.

Here is a brief snapshot of some of the resources the website offers:

  • Eyes on the Earth 3D: Fly alongside NASA satellites and view real-time datasets in an immersive, 3D visualization
  • Climate Time Machine: Go backward and forward in time with this interactive visualization that illustrates how the Earth's climate has changed in recent history
  • Global Ice Viewer: Explore the sentinels of climate change with this interactive global ice viewer. This resource has been selected for inclusion in the CLEAN collection.
