The analysis of the current approaches for Greenhouse Effect forecasting is performed. New methodology has been proposed to estimate the Greenhouse Effect and its change through coupled ground experimental CO2 flow assessment and satellite data analysis. The multi-temporal variations of the areas under the different vegetation species with their photosynthetic activity features are considered. The CO2 flow values are determined to convert them into the temperature changes and to use in the models of energy-mass exchange in the geo-spheres for computer forecasting of global and regional climate changes.
