NASA invested in cracking Earth’s carbon puzzle: NASA Global Climate Change https://t.co/L7vlf27amu

By Steve Cole, NASA's Office of Communications It’s a scientific conundrum with huge implications for our future: How will our planet react to the increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? That seemingly simple question is particularly tricky because carbon – an essential building block for life on Earth – does not stay in one place or take only one form. Carbon in its many forms, both from natural and human-caused sources, moves within and among the atmosphere, the ocean and land as our living planet breathes. To track and inventory carbon and unravel the many intricate processes that cause it to morph across the planet is an epic challenge. And that’s where NASA comes in. NASA’s latest carbon-observing space mission is the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2, which is making unprecedented global measurements of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. Credit: NASA...
