MethaneSAT will find and measure methane emissions with unparalleled precision – including emissions that other satellites simply can’t see.
Some satellites can track methane on a global scale but can’t detect emissions from countless smaller sources responsible for much of the total. Others provide excellent data from known sites with larger emissions but can’t see beyond small areas.
With high precision and a wide view path, MethaneSAT will track not only the rate at which methane is being emitted and from where, but how those emissions are changing – making it easier to prioritize solutions for maximum benefit.
Each of these systems plays a valuable role. Together, they’re delivering crucial insight on a problem where good data is scarce.
