CO2 Measurements, education, and capacity building in KenyaGuy Brasseur & Sherri Heck/NESLThe project’s overarching goals are to provide valuable scientific data, promote technological transfer and help NCAR meet its diversity and education goals. By focusing on underrepresented people in terms of the education and outreach (E&O) and under-sampled areas in terms of the carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration
data (these two areas often coincide), the projectprovides invaluable data to the science community and bolsters science education in areas that would have most likely otherwise been ignored.
