    • Assemble a versatile, economical system for measuring airborne fluxes

    • Quantify greenhouse gas (GHG) sources/sinks over a spectrum of ecosystems

    • Evaluate biophysical process models and parameterizations

    • Validate top-level satellite flux products from OCO-2 and other missions

    Airborne GHG fluxes can address a suite of global questions
    • How does land-air exchange of CO2 and CH4 respond to climate-induced stresses (heat, drought, pests)?

    • How do energy production (oil/gas, corn ethanol) and agricultural activities impact GHG inventories?

    • What is the release rate of CH4 from thawing permafrost?
