A team of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and UMD scientists lead by Dr. Randy Kawa has been awarded a NASA Carbon Monitoring system program grant to validate and evaluate High-Resolution MRV Systems with Airborne Eddy Flux Measurements.

The guiding science question for this proposal is: how best to validate CMS regional-scale products and how well can this be done The team aims to expand the current scope of validation methods for CMS through acquisition and analysis of airborne eddy covariance carbon flux observations. The project will address the question: How can real-time flux measurements over regional length scales contribute to validation of the products and processes inherent in designing a high-resolution Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) system?
