The TanSat mission detected and monitored carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. The satellite carried two instruments: the Atmospheric Carbon-dioxide Grating Spectrometer (ACGS) for near-infrared CO2 absorption measurements and the Cloud Aerosol Polarization Imager (CAPI) for high-resolution cloud and aerosol studies, which helped correct CO2 measurement errors.
