A unique, visual tool to help researchers and applied scientists find and explore papers relevant to their field of work using a visual graph.
* Get a visual overview of a new academic field. Enter a typical paper and Connected Papers will build you a graph of similar papers in the field.
* Make sure you haven't missed an important paper.
* Discover the most relevant prior and derivative works. Use the Prior Works view to find important ancestor works in your field of interest. Use our Derivative Works view to find literature reviews of the field, as well as recently published State of the Art that followed your input paper.
A platform to explore and visualize the most up-to-date data on carbon fluxes resulting from human activities and natural processes.
The Atlas has three components with objectives and information relevant to different users:
OUTREACH takes you on a journey tracing the history and possible future relationship between carbon emissions and human development. It is intended as an educational experience for the broad public while utilizing robust and up-to-date observations and modeling from climate change science.
EMISSIONS is a tool to explore, display and download data and figures on carbon dioxide emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels, cement production and land use change over multiple decades, including their drivers. Information is available at the global, regional and national levels with tools that allow comparison, ranking and to visualize changes over time. Data from Contributors.
RESEARCH provides tools to create custom global and regional maps and time series of carbon fluxes from research models and datasets. Data are contributed by many research institutions (see Contributors). This component will further advance collaborative international research on the functioning of the carbon cycle and its interactions with the climate system.
ICOS provides standardised and open data from more than 140 measurement stations across 13 European countries. The stations observe greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere as well as carbon fluxes between the atmosphere, the land surface and the oceans. Thus, ICOS is rooted in three domains: Atmosphere, Ecosystem and Ocean.
The ICOS community consists of more than 500 scientists in both its current Member and Observer countries and beyond. More than 80 renowned universities or institutes are a part of the ICOS community. The ICOS community has strong connections to colleagues and operators outside ICOS. ICOS-based knowledge supports policy- and decision-making to combat climate change and its impacts.
