Today’s Image of the Day is a three-dimensional portrait of methane emissions rising from the ground and moving through the atmosphere.
To create the image, experts at NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio combined data from inventories of methane emissions with a high-resolution computer model.
Methane is one of the biggest contributors to global warming. The new model will help scientists get a better understanding of the role that methane plays in Earth’s complex climate system.
