Methane 'super-emitter'
Reducing the number and size of methane leaks should be made easier with the launch of Planet Labs' hyperspectral imaging constellation. The Carbon Mapper Coalition, which is closely involved in the project, reckons that as much as 40% of all methane emissions in oil and gas basins are caused by "super-emitter" events that should be picked up with the satellite data. This image was generated by an airborne spectrometer flown over the US. Image: CarbonMapper.
