The process of sequestering carbon dioxide (CO2) involves identifying sources that produce CO2 and sinks where the CO2 can be stored. These web pages present interactive maps and background information on the process of storing CO2. This Atlas is created by the NatCarb project and sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory. click here for an introduction to the atlas and access to the entire document.
The Global Heat Flow Database of
The International Heat Flow Commission
Current global heat flow data (24,774 observations at 20,201 sites) are maintained by the International Heat Flow Commission (IHFC) of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI). Previous compilations of the data were provided by Lee and Uyeda (1965), Simmons and Horai (1968), Jessop, Hobart, and Sclater (1975), and Pollack, Hurter, and Johnson, 1993. The data in all but a few cases were extracted from the original publications. At this site they may be downloaded in spreadsheet format (Microsoft Excel) and ASCII format.

PRISM 3D is a collaborative data analysis and climate modeling effort. The primary goal is to create three-dimensional global data sets of mid-Pliocene ocean temperature and salinity, which will form the most comprehensive global reconstruction for any warm period prior to the recent past. The data sets will be then used to drive numerical simulations designed to explore the impact of climate forcings and feedbacks during the middle Pliocene. The middle Pliocene world provides an unequaled paleo-laboratory to test the sensitivity of the physical models that we rely upon for estimating future warming impacts. It challenges our understanding of the sensitivity of key components of the climate system and how we simulate that system: polar vs. tropical sensitivity, the role of ocean circulation in a warming climate, the hydrological impact of altered storm tracks, and the regional climate impacts of modified atmospheric and oceanic energy transport systems.
