New CO2 Green report 2019 published
The European Commission is working to set up an Operational Anthropogenic CO₂ Emissions Monitoring & Verification Support Capacity.
The CO2 Green report describes the needs and high level requirements of in situ measurements to help establish an operational Monitoring & Verification Support (MVS) capacity to quantify anthropogenic CO2 emissions. The analysis addresses these needs for all core elements of the envisaged integrated system with a particular focus on the impact of in situ measurements in achieving the proposed objectives. The specific needs for the validation of products delivered by the space component – that is, the Copernicus Sentinels CO2 monitoring constellation – are addressed as an additional prerequisite for the success of the CO2 support capacity. The resulting European asset will represent a significant contribution to the virtual international constellation proposed by the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) and complementary requirements are elaborated in that international context.
