NASA Announces Briefing on Carbon Mission Science Results

NASA will hold a media teleconference at 11
a.m. PDT (2 p.m.
EDT) Thursday, Oct. 12, to discuss new research to be
published this week on changing global levels of carbon dioxide
in the
atmosphere. The research is based on data from NASA’s
Orbiting Carbon
Observatory-2 (OCO-2) mission and other
satellites.

NASA launched OCO-2 in 2014 to gather global
measurements of
atmospheric carbon dioxide with the resolution, precision and
coverage needed to understand how this important greenhouse gas
moves through
the Earth system and how it changes over time.

The teleconference panelists will be:

  • Michael Freilich, director, Earth Science
    Division, NASA
    Headquarters, Washington
  • Annmarie Eldering, OCO-2 deputy project
    scientist, NASA’s
    Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California
  • Junjie Liu, research scientist, JPL
  • Scott Denning, professor of atmospheric science,
    Colorado
    State University, Fort Collins

Visuals to accompany the telecon will be
available shortly
before it starts at:

The public may ask questions during the briefing on Twitter
using the
hashtag #askNASA.
