HELP NEEDED!! Data about Iraq

Hey! For my Internal Assessment for the IB Diploma, I need to find data regarding Iraq and some measure of climate change. Initially, I was thinking mean surface temp or some measure of greenhouse gas emissions, I am open to any other appropriate measure of climate change.

Does NASA have data regarding Iraq? I know they measure global temps, is there a way to access data regarding other countries?

I'm having a hard time going through their data. Any tips are appreciated.

Thanks,
Lillie

hi Ihok2401,

The NASA POWER Project (https://power.larc.nasa.gov/) has global reanalysis surface data going back to 1981 to present. I would start there.

If you need true surface temperature measurements, then you can try the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/maps/monthly/) and search for ground stations in Iraq.

Thank you,
