An elevation map of the canyon has revealed that you can see some of the highest spots on the planet in only 11 years, thanks to the dramatic rise in CO2 emissions and global warming.
The image, published by The Washington Post, is based on data collected by the USGS from 2011 through 2015.
The elevation map shows the area where the average annual CO2 levels are currently about 20 times higher than during the 20th century.
CO2 was estimated to have been in the atmosphere for nearly 10,000 years, meaning CO2 is still rising and rising.
The CO2 in the air is about twice the amount in the ocean at present.
The area of the map where the CO2 level has been increasing is at the top, or at the highest, and this area is considered a high-CO2 region.
There are also places where the annual average is less than 10 years old.
“This area is the most carbon intensive and thus the most important, because it has the highest cumulative amount of carbon emissions,” said Matt Smith, an atmospheric scientist at the US Geological Survey (USGS) in Boulder, Colorado.
Smith said the elevation map is an important tool for scientists to better understand how CO2 impacts the atmosphere and oceans.
The map shows that CO2 concentrations have been rising at about 20 percent per decade since the beginning of the 21st century, but it’s likely that this trend is continuing, and will accelerate as CO2 pollution continues to increase.
“These maps are a window into how CO02 is affecting the atmosphere,” Smith said.CO2 emissions from humans are the main driver of CO2’s increase, and CO2 makes up nearly two-thirds of the greenhouse gases that the world emits.
However, it’s also caused by other pollutants like nitrous oxide (N2O), which is a byproduct of burning fossil fuels.
The other third of the CO02 emissions comes from other sources, including plants and animals.
The USGS data is being used by scientists to understand how the carbon cycle works, and it also provides information on CO2 sources and sinks, which can be used to understand other processes that are affecting CO2.
The CO2 data was collected using satellite altimetry, which uses lasers to scan the sky for clouds.
Satellite altimeters can be useful in studying the Earth’s climate.
“The satellites, by analyzing the data from altimetric altimeters, can measure how much CO2 and other greenhouse gases the atmosphere contains, and where that CO02 can be found,” Smith told Al Jazeera.
The altimeter also can measure the amount of CO02 in the ground, as well as the temperature and humidity in a particular region.
