Lawns & Landscaping Provide Surprising Contribution to Los Angeles Basin’s Carbon Emissions

The Los Angeles Basin is often thought of as a dry, smoggy, overdeveloped landscape. But a new study funded in part by CPO's Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate Program shows that the manicured lawns, emerald golf courses and trees of America’s second-largest city have a surprisingly large influence on the city’s carbon emissions.

Tracking fossil fuel emissions with carbon-14 1 June 2020

Tracking fossil fuel emissions with carbon-14

Researchers, funded in part by CPO's Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate Program (AC4), have devised a breakthrough method for estimating national emissions of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels using ambient air samples and a well-known isotope of carbon that scientists have relied on for decades to date archaeological sites.
