Abstract: This proposal is to extend NASA GSFC’s contributions to the Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) from the Flux Pilot Project and CMS Phase One. The proposed work will draw on the capabilities of NASA’s Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS) models to deliver mature flux and concentration data products in support of CMS objectives. The proposed work consis ... [more]
