The NASA Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) is designed to make significant contributions in characterizing, quantifying, understanding, and predicting the evolution of global carbon sources and sinks through improved monitoring of carbon stocks and fluxes. The System, which is a component of NASA's Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems focus area, will use the full range of NASA satellite observations and modeling and analysis capabilities to establish the accuracy, quantitative uncertainties, and utility of products for supporting national and international policy, regulatory, and management activities. CMS will maintain a global emphasis while providing finer scale regional information, using space-based and surface-based data.
The ORNL DAAC plans to archive finalized data from the Land Biomass and Land-Atmosphere Flux science themes. Other CMS science themes are described on the CMS Website.
