CarbonTracker-CH4: An assimilation system for estimating emissions of atmospheric methane

CarbonTracker methane, an off-shoot of NOAA's highly successful CarbonTracker, which was partially funded by CPO's AC4 program, has earned peer-reviewed status with a recent paper in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics.

Airborne measurements confirm leaks from oil and gas operations 7 May 2014

Airborne measurements confirm leaks from oil and gas operations

During two days of intensive airborne measurements, oil and gas operations in Colorado’s Front Range leaked nearly three times as much methane, a greenhouse gas, as predicted based on inventory estimates, and seven times as much benzene, a regulated air toxic.

Contribution of sea surface carbon pool to organic matter enrichment in sea spray aerosol 18 March 2014

Contribution of sea surface carbon pool to organic matter enrichment in sea spray aerosol

Research funded by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4) program was published in Nature Geosciences.  The article assesses the relationship between the organic carbon content of sea water and freshly emitted sea spray aerosol in the North Atlantic as well as the coastal waters of California.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
