Climate Change "Dashboard" (credit: NASA Climate Change)

NASA has created a series of climate change visualizations to view the effects of environmental alterations in progress. The series of big data visuals shows how key climate indicators including: sea ice, sea level rise, carbon dioxide, and global temperatures are changing over time. By sliding the cursor on each environmental feature on the dashboard, you can view the changes to the Southeastern USA; Northern Europe, the Amazon River Delta; and to Southeast Asia.

An example of these climate change visualizations is a data animation from 2016-2020 of the Greenland ice cap melting.

As additional climate data is gathered and added to the NASA databases, the climate models will become more and more exact in their regional representations.
