Mississippi River Delta Organic Carbon Stocks

Tidal wetlands are a substantial global sink of organic carbon stocks. This image shows estimated soil carbon stocks in the Mississippi River delta in Louisiana. Cooler colors (blue/green) indicate higher soil carbon concentrations.

NASA Carbon Monitoring System

NASA's Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) seeks to characterize, quantify, understand, and predict the evolution of global carbon sources and sinks through improved monitoring of carbon stocks and fluxes. CMS uses the full range of NASA satellite observations and modeling/analysis capabilities.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
