Successor Projects: Bowman-01   Bowman-02   Pawson-01   Ott-01  
Abstract: There are no direct global-scale observations of carbon fluxes between the land and oceans and the over lying atmosphere. Understanding the carbon cycle requires estimates of these fluxes, which can be computed indirectly using models constrained with global space-based observations that provide information about the physical and biological state ...
