NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 Satellite data used to make Global Carbon Dioxide Emissions Maps

 

Written by Alan Buis
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Scientists have produced the first global maps of human emissions of carbon dioxide ever made solely from satellite observations of the greenhouse gas.

The maps, based on data from NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite and generated with a new data-processing technique, agree well with inventories of known carbon dioxide emissions.

No satellite before OCO-2 was capable of measuring carbon dioxide in fine enough detail to allow researchers to create maps of human emissions from the satellite data alone. Instead, earlier maps also incorporated estimates from economic data and modeling results.

AAA Issues Safety Tips for International Travelers

 

AAAKnoxville, TN – AAA offers its deepest sympathies to those affected by the terrorist attacks in Brussels. A ‘Travel Alert’ is currently in effect for all of Europe, outlining the potential risks; however, the State Department has not gone so far as to urge travelers to cancel vacations by issuing a ‘Travel Warning’.

“AAA travel agents have received numerous calls from concerned travelers, but very few have cancelled their vacations to Europe,” said Don Lindsey, Public Affairs Director, AAA Tennessee. “While AAA urges all travelers to stay informed and increase their awareness when traveling abroad, the decision to vacation in Europe is a very personal decision that is solely up to the individual traveler.”

AAA experiences few cancellations in Tennessee, despite ‘Travel Alert’ to Europe.
