Advanced in-flight measurements to quantify methane emission
Methane is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted from human activities. Atmospheric methane concentrations have tripled since pre-industrial times, and this increase has contributed about 20% of the global radiative forcing due to long-lived greenhouse gases. Quantifying sources of methane is therefore necessary to inform future climate change mitigation policy.
This one hour replay of our webinar on November 3rd, 2016, features Jeff Peischl (Researcher, NOAA) and David Kim-Hak (Product Manager, Picarro) discussing in-flight methane concentration measurements. Jeff shares his extensive experiences in quantifying methane emissions from rice agriculture, landfills, the oil and gas industry, and livestock in California as well as several major U.S. shale gas production regions. David presents information about how Picarro technology has enabled continuous and in-flight measurements of greenhouse gas (GHG) including information on the Picarro G2401-m. If you have an interest in urban and industrial GHG source quantification, this webinar is for you!
