    Satellites Could Help Quantify, Monitor Ocean Carbon

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Satellite-based Earth observation is key to globally monitoring oceanic carbon absorption levels, according to a study led by researchers at the University of Exeter.

    Satellites originally launched to study the wind also have the capability to observe how rain, wind, waves, foam, and temperature combine to control the movement of heat and carbon dioxide (CO2) between the ocean and the atmosphere. Satellites launched to remotely sense gas emissions over the land are also able to measure CO2 emissions as they disperse over the ocean. Finer spatial resolution remote-sensing observations have been particularly useful for studying processes and fluxes in CO2 values in areas that have commonly been omitted in global-scale flux…
