  • Wavelength bands of Weak CO2, Strong CO2, and Strong O2

Launch Date:  February 24, 2009

Description:  OCO­2 is an exploratory science mission designed to collect space­based global measurements of atmospheric CO2 with the precision, resolution, and coverage needed to characterize sources and sinks (fluxes) on regional scales (≥1000km). OCO­2 will also be able to quantify CO2 variability over the seasonal cycles year after year. This mission will also validate a space­based measurement approach and analysis concept that could be used for future systematic CO2 monitoring missions.
