NCEO staff will be active scientifically at COP26. Their inputs, on exhibition stands and as speakers, are aimed at showcasing the measurement of greenhouse gas concentrations accurately from space, and illustrating differences between the world today and the climate plus 2oC. This research will provide information on changes in the carbon store of the world’s forests and illuminating the use of satellite information for climate change mitigation.
