Sensor network to collect and crunch greenhouse gas data

CNet News
12 January 2010

Earth Networks and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, a part of the University of California, San Diego, have announced a collaborative initiative to deploy the largest global greenhouse gas observation network. This announcement coincides with a corporate rebranding of AWS Convergence Technologies, the parent company of WeatherBug, to become Earth Networks.

The network of sensors will gather more accurate information on the dynamics of greenhouse gases in local areas and measure changes over time. Fifty sensors will be placed in places, such as weather towers in the U.S, and another 50 in Europe and other areas.
