Paper Abstract

The MicroCarb mission objective is to better understand the carbon cycle and predict its evolution. For that purpose MicroCarb is designed to measure the carbon dioxide (CO2) mixing ratio column within 1 ppm (a measurement precision of ~0.3%) from a space observatory in low Earth orbit (LEO) so as to locate and characterise the CO2 sinks and sources.
