NASA engineers have developed a new instrument for gathering around-the-clock atmospheric carbon dioxide measurements from space. The CO2 Sounder Lidar would beam a laser down to the Earth's surface and measure the wavelengths of light that reflect back to provide a much more accurate measurement of CO2 levels than existing systems, and in a wider range of conditions.
