CMS: CO2 Signals Estimated for Fossil Fuel Emissions and Biosphere Flux, California

Data Set Overview

Data setCMS: CO2 Signals Estimated for Fossil Fuel Emissions and Biosphere Flux, California
Release date2017-03-20
ProjectCarbon Monitoring System (CMS)
Time Period2010-11-01 to 2011-05-31


This data set provides estimated CO2 emission signals for 16 regions (air quality basins) in California, USA, during the individual months of November 2010 and May 2011. The CO2 signals were predicted from simulated atmospheric CO2 observations and modeled fossil fuel emissions and biosphere CO2 fluxes. Data is also provided for the land surface in the larger modeling domain outside California. CO2 signals refer to the local enhancement or depletion in atmospheric CO2 concentration caused by fossil fuel emissions or biospheric exchange occurring within the region.

Carbon Monitoring System (CMS): 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 will use the full range of NASA satellite observations and modeling/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, utilizing space-based and surface-based data and will rapidly initiate generation and distribution of products both for user evaluation and to inform near-term policy development and planning.
