MethaneSAT will be the most advanced methane-tracking satellite in space. It will monitor methane emissions almost anywhere on Earth with greater precision than any other satellite, measuring large sources as well as those too small for other instruments to see – detecting changes in concentration as small as 3 parts per billion. And it will make its data available to policymakers, industry, scientists, and the public, for free. You can learn more about MethaneSAT here.
