CNES KLIMAT 2021
The CNES campaign are part of the infrastructure project Hemera, within the European program Horizon 2020. The project is coordinated by the French space agency CNES.
A total of four flights were operated on the Esrange by CNES during August, starting on 13 August. On board the stratospheric balloons were as many as 17 different instruments, which were used to measure the presence of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, methane and other greenhouse gases at different levels in the atmosphere. The purpose of the measurements is to find out how climate change has affected the earth’s system and the carbon dioxide cycle.
