Improving Satellite Monitoring of Methane Emissions – Data science is fundamental to better emissions tracking

Payne Institute Faculty Fellow Dorit Hammerling, Researcher William Daniels, Director Morgan Bazilian, and Communications Associate Brooke Bowser write about how reducing methane emissions is a focus of addressing climate change. To do so effectively requires a robust monitoring and reporting system. Using data science, researchers at the Payne Institute are able to reduce the limitations of existing satellite data by providing localized estimations of methane fields to help fill the gaps of current monitoring.  November 9, 2021.
