TROPOMI: Next-Generation Global-Scale Atmospheric, Carbon, And Climate Data

The international scientific community has been studying climate change and increases in the atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) for decades. Receiving less attention is methane (CH4), which is emitted at much lower rates than CO2, but yet it is 25 times more potent than CO2 for trapping heat in the atmosphere. Considering emission rates and potency, CH4 is the second most important contributor to the enhanced greenhouse effect. The latest remote sensing technology, deployed into space in October 2017,...
