GeoCarb will collect 10 million daily observations of the concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide and solar-induced fluorescence (SIF) at a spatial resolution of about 3 to 6 miles (5 to 10 kilometers).  Its longitude will allow “wall-to-wall” observations over the Americas between 50 degrees North and South latitude -- from the southern tip of Hudson Bay to the southern tip of South America.
