Satellite Data for Greenhouse Gas Emissions Monitoring
DATA.SAT delivers high-resolution satellite data to identify point sources of methane (CH4) emissions down to the individual facility level, globally.
Accurate detection, measurement and monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions using satellite data, supports informed decision-making, to take action on specific assets and reduce emissions.
Our satellite constellation is growing rapidly:
3 in orbit
8 more in 2022
This capability is unmatched and enables us to provide consistent and reliable intelligence on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Our suite of satellite data products and services can deliver unique insight over large areas with multiple assets, as well as provide measurements for larger sources, such as landfills and hydro power infrastructures, in a single observation.
Multi-layer GEOTIFF containing per-pixel methane concentration data, including surface reflectance image.
Visualization layer of methane emission overlaid on ground imagery, includes surface reflectance, column density and estimated excess foreground density (see example on the right).
Cutting-edge retrieval methods to infer emission rate estimates from high-resolution concentration data.
