Since 2003, DAPNIA has been involved with LSCE (Laboratory of Climate and Environmental Sciences) in a project to make and install instruments to measure the carbon dioxide concentration in the air, known as Caribou. The project is driven by LSCE, which is running a program to gain a proper understanding of how the carbon cycle works, to try to anticipate potential changes. DAPNIA was chosen for its expertise in remote control/command and for the quality of its mechanical and electrical work. The laboratory is responsible for the design, production and installation of these instruments.
