AGGREGATION AND ANALYSIS OF METHANE DATA IN THE DJ BASIN, COLORADO
Payne Institute Fellow Dorit Hammerling and Payne Research Associate William Daniels consider emissions data in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin. They focus on methane data from the TROPOMI instrument on board the Copernicus Sentinel-5 Precursor satellite. They have aggregated the data into a variety of temporal packets and performed an initial exploratory analysis. This review will help inform ongoing and future air pollution monitoring eﬀorts. These eﬀorts rely on data gathered from a wide array of monitoring techniques, including ground-level sensors, drones, and planes. Being able to better incorporate satellite data into these eﬀorts will oﬀer a more complete emissions proﬁle, which can be used to inform both operations and regulations. May 5, 2020.
