The European Commission is establishing an operational observation-based anthropogenic CO2 emissions monitoring and verification support capacity (CO2MVS) as part of its Copernicus Earth Observation programme. Demonstrator systems for this CO2MVS are being developed in the Prototype System for a Copernicus CO2 service (CoCO2) project.

The Functional Requirements Specification Document (D6.4) describes the codes that have been used to generate Figures 2-7 of D6.5 and explains how the user requirements identified by CoCO2  have been addressed from a technical point of view by each demonstrator. The present Fitness for Purpose Document explains how these user requirements have been addressed from a scientific point of view. The references for each demonstrator are given directly at the end of the section where it is described.
