TANSAT is a Chinese satellite designed to track greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere. Using a near-infrared spectrometer, the TanSat satellite will track regional and global concentrations of carbon dioxide down to four parts per million, generating monthly maps of where the densest greenhouse gas levels are distributed worldwide. The TANSAT spacecraft can turn to point its instruments straight down at Earth, pivot to aim toward the sun's glint off ocean and land surfaces, and conduct targeted observations of carbon-emitting cities and heavy industrial regions. The satellite will cover every part of the planet at least once every 16 days during its three-year mission.
