Beijing-Tianjin-Heibei (JJJ) is a densely-populated region, as well as important economic growth engines in North China. Economic reconstruction and integration in this region will result in change of carbon emissions. Institute of Atmospheric Physics(IAP) at Chinese Academy of Sciences is leading and coordinating intensive observations in JJJ region from January 7th to January 12th, 2019, to produce more detailed 3-D CO2 concentration for regional CO2 emission study. In addition to monitor CO2 in this region from space using TanSat, China's first greenhouse monitoring satellite, aerostats, cars and planes are employed in the obervation campaigns.
