On December 4, Colm Sweeney, Aircraft Program lead for the NOAA Global Monitoring Division Carbon Cycle Group and Acting Deputy Director for CPO’s Ocean Observing and Monitoring Division, will present results from an intensive airborne campaign to measure levels of methane, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and ethane emissions from five major cities along the East Coast. Supported by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry Carbon Cycle and Climate program, the study evaluated whether cities are a major source of emissions that are largely ignored by existing natural gas inventories. The research also serves as a case study for using commercial aircraft to monitor greenhouse gas emissions from other urban centers around the world.
