Data Reduction and Analysis Based on the collected data from Mauna Loa, in the last fifty years the amount of carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere has steadily increased. The data collection began in 1959 and extended through the year 1998. The concentration of CO2 began at approximately 317ppmv in 1959 and increased to approximately 368ppmv by 1998. The concentration of CO2 varies throughout the year corresponding to the seasons of the year. This indicates that the

Unformatted text preview: concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere directly relates to the temperature. Based on the experiments and analysis of Vostok ice cores, it is proven that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere directly relates to the temperature changes. As the temperature decreases, the amount of carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere decreases. As the temperature increases, the amount of carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere increases....
