December 17, 2020: High-frequency monitoring of anomalous methane point sources with multispectral Sentinel-2 satellite observations

In this paper, we demonstrate the capability of the Sentinel-2 MultiSpectral satellite Instrument (MSI) to detect and quantify large methane point sources with fine pixel resolution (20 m) and rapid revisit rates (2–5 days).
