New research has demonstrated how satellite-based Earth observation could allow for more accurate monitoring of ocean carbon dioxide levels and consequently evoke positive policy change.

The rising carbon dioxide levels are an increasing concern for climate scientists and policy makers. Consequentially, there is a crucial demand for an accurate method to routinely quantify global carbon dioxide levels stored in oceans and on land.
