This visualization starts by showing total column carbon dioxide values (colored squares) being measured by the OCO-2 sensor. Eventually, the total carbon dioxide from the GEOS data assimilation model is shown under the OCO-2 data. Every six hours, the OCO-2 measurements are assimilated into the GEOS model by adjusting model values to agree with OCO-2 values at those locations. In order to see this process, look for locations where OCO-2 values are shortly followed by abrupt local changes in the background data colors.
