Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO)-2



The OCO-2 E/PO Program is committed to bringing the latest and most relevant carbon dioxide science and findings to a broad audience, and informing them about why we need to study this greenhouse gas. What we will learn from OCO-2 will improve our understanding of carbon dioxide and its role in climate studies. This improved understanding will help policy makers and business leaders formulate decisions that address climate change issues and, at the same time, improve our quality of life.
