Initiated and directed through a 2010 Congressional Appropriation, the NASA Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) is a forward-looking initiative designed to make significant contributions in characterizing, quantifying, understanding, and predicting the evolution of global carbon sources and sinks through improved monitoring of carbon stocks and fluxes.
Next CMS Science Team Meeting will be held at Caltech
