GeoCarb was selected in December 2016 by NASA as the next Earth Venture Mission. Starting in 2022, GeoCarb will make observations of CO2, CO, CH4 and solar induced fluorescence from geostationary orbit over the Americas. The orbit will allow for daily observations of the land mass between 50S and 50N at high spatial resolution (5-10km). In this presentation, we will present an overview of the GeoCarb mission as well as provide a description of the instrument and expected impact on important carbon cycle process level understanding.
