Vulcan Project: The Breath of a Nation

Credit the clever title to Andy Revkin. It is a map showing the concentrations of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere. Watch the amazing video of the Vulcan Project, "an effort to quantify fossil fuel and CO2 emissions over the United States in high space and time resolution. We will also be showing those emissions transported through the atmosphere using an atmospheric transport model." narrated by Kevin Gurney of Purdue University.

Different maps show power plants, industrial sources, mobile sources, residential and commercial, mashed together onto a 10 kilometer grid and run in very fast motion.
