  • The importance of research and monitoring techniques to identify and record changes to the global water and carbon cycles; reasons why this data is gathered.
    • Accurate monitoring of changes in global air temperatures, sea surface temperatures (SST), sea ice thickness and rates of deforestation are essential. Ground-based measurements of environmental change are impractical
    • Arctic Sea Ice
    • Ice caps/Glaciers
    • Sea surface temperatures (SST)
    • Water vapour
    • Deforestation
    • Atmospheric CO2
    • Primary production in oceans
