Half of the year is going to past, and during this pandemic, most of the world's developed countries are in lockdown. So how we can see the effect of COVID-19 on our climate?


Most of what's been shown on TV has been satellite photos and local photos.

For example, many photos were taken of China, as compared to a year previously. The differences were significant.

Likewise with photos of the sky through the l'arc de triumphe in France. The current picture showed a nice blue sky. Pictures from a year ago were nasty grey.

Anecdotally here, we have birds nesting on our downtown windowsill, and just much less dirt and dust floating in the window, as well as fewer exhaust or asphalt smells. I wonder how many dimensions of data could show this systematically - from health data to plant productivity to temperature changes, to changes in thermal patterns in urban surfaces. Great question!
