GHGSat produced the map from data generated by the company’s satellites […] On Wednesday, GHGSat unveiled Pulse, an interactive map available for free online that has a resolution of approximately two kilometres by two kilometres. At least 60 percent of methane coming from the world’s wetlands originates in the tropics, while waste disposal is driving a 1.5 percent increase in methane emissions each year from southern Asia. This is the dangerous world of atmospheric methane emissions, one of the most powerful drivers of global warning–and it’s visible to the public for the first time. The map identifies concentration of methane across the troposhere, where naturally occurring emissions such as from wetlands mingle with those caused by human activity. Methane emissions (kt of CO2 equivalent) European Commission, Joint Research Centre ( JRC )/Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency ( PBL ). 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.
