Project Duration: 2012 - 2014
Solicitation:NASA: Carbon Monitoring System (2011)
Precursor Projects: Gunson-Pawson-Potter-01  
Abstract: This proposal is for a continuation of NASA GSFC s activities related to the Carbon Monitoring System, Flux Pilot Study (CMS FPP). The work will enhance and develop the capabilities of NASA s Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS) set of models and assimilation components to further develop a core capability for CMS-related carbon cycle science and ...
