Short summary
Our simulations suggest that CO2 measurements by the planned ASCENDS satellite could improve estimates of emissions and uptake by up to 50% at the weekly 1° by 1° scale, 40-75% at the annual biome scale, and 65-85% for the whole of North America. The results depend on the laser wavelength used and the assumed precision of the measurements. The resulting biome flux uncertainties, 0.01-0.06 billion tons of C per year, would satisfy one definition of mission success.
