Methane is the powerful greenhouse gas that’s not being talked about.

PULSE GHGSat is a unique interactive tool making the invisible, visible.


Iris delivers first results: Smallest Methane emission ever detected from space

This image was taken on 15 September 2020, by GHGSat’s second satellite Iris, following her launch on 2 September 2020. Iris was tasked with measuring a controlled release of methane from a facility in Alberta, Canada. Ground measurements of the controlled release confirmed an emission rate of 260 kgCH4/hr.

GHGSat commercial satellites map plumes of methane in the atmosphere down to 25m on the ground, detecting and measuring emissions from point sources 100 times smaller than any comparable system with a resolution 100 times higher, comparable to the emissions from a large landfill.
