  • Carbon source/sink information provided by column CO2 measurements from the Orbiting Carbon Observatory 

    Baker, David F.; Bosch, H.; Doney, Scott C.; O'Brien, D.; Schimel, David S. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2010-05-03)
    We quantify how well column-integrated CO2 measurements from the Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) should be able to constrain surface CO2 fluxes, given the presence of various error sources. We use variational data ...
  • Precision requirements for space-based XCO2 data 

    Miller, C. E.; Crisp, D.; DeCola, P. L.; Olsen, S. C.; Randerson, James T.; Michalak, Anna M.; Alkhaled, A.; Rayner, Peter; Jacob, D. J.; Suntharalingam, P.; Jones, D. B. A.; Denning, A. S.; Nicholls, M. E.; Doney, Scott C.; Pawson, S.; Boesch, H.; Connor, B. J.; Fung, Inez Y.; O'Brien, D.; Salawitch, R. J.; Sander, S. P.; Sen, B.; Tans, Pieter P.; Toon, G. C.; Wennberg, Paul O.; Wofsy, Steven C.; Yung, Y. L.; Law, R. M. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-26)
    Precision requirements are determined for space-based column-averaged CO2 dry air mole fraction (XCO2) data. These requirements result from an assessment of spatial and temporal gradients in XCO2, the relationship between ...
