SWISS.CO2.LIVE / CARBOSENSE
The project swiss.CO2.live / Carbosense establishes a uniquely dense network of approximately 300 DL-LP8P CO₂ sensors distributed over Switzerland with a even denser cluster over the city of Zurich to provide near real-time information on man-made emissions and CO₂ uptake by the biosphere.
The devices are equipped with low-cost, battery-powered sensors and use Swisscom's new Low Power Network (LPN) for data transmission.
The ability to implement long-term greenhouse gas policies and manage them effectively requires consistent, reliable, and timely information on CO₂ emissions. Furthermore, CO₂ is an excellent proxy for air pollution assessment and model validation. Carbosense strives to overcome the fact that dense LPN sensing is yet largely unexploited in atmospheric monitoring.
