An ultra-high-resolution NASA computer model has given scientists a stunning new look at how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe. Plumes of carbon dioxide in the simulation swirl and shift as winds disperse the greenhouse gas away from its sources.

Designed for Science on a Sphere, this video explains fast and slow carbon cycling on Earth. A banana is an example of a fast, young carbon. A chunk of coal is an example of an old, slow carbon. Carbon dioxide and vegetation on land seen from space by satellites show the annual cycle: as plants grow...
