Project Duration: 2014 - 2017
Solicitation:NASA: Carbon Monitoring System (2014)
Abstract: The NASA Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) is poised to fill a missing gap in blue carbon accounting by providing 1) a national-scale data framework to integrate and extrapolate field measurements that support national GHG inventory requirements, and 2) testing data needs for quantification of stock-based changes in coastal wetland sediments (soil) an ...
