Carbon-driven emission is on the increase and good effort requires prompt stabilization. In this study, we have drawn conclusions based on the methodology. A study from literature figured till date, no analysis has presented a new and significant method of validating seasonal carbon dioxide trend. The retrieval of carbon dioxide (), temperature and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data from NASA Terra MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) satellite were obtained from 2003 to 2008 over Africa (Nigeria, Mauritania, Congo, Sudan) Europe (France, Finland, Turkey, Ukraine) and Asia (China, Mongolia, India, Afghanistan). For the first time in literature, seasonal index analysis is obtained by dividing yearly mean for each monthly period. Additionally, we placed a percentage difference correlation of relationship and validated the seasonal change maintaining solar activity cycle. By grouping the years based on solar activity maximum (2003-2004), intermediate (2005-2006) and very low (2007-2008) the results expanded the physical interpretation that seasonal fluctuation of NDVI corresponds to the terrestrial sink of regional, mostly occurring during equinoctial months. Also, the seasonal variation of carbon dioxide from the result of our analysis depends on geographic latitude and solar activity cycle. This result is very essential in studying future trend relationship.
