MethaneAIR: A High-Resolution Infrared Imaging Spectrometer for Airborne Measurements of CH4 and CO2

Measures total-column dry air mole fraction of CH4 and CO2 over a 23.7° swath at high spatial resolution

  • Precursor to MethaneSAT, which will revolutionize measurements and modeling of CH4 emissions across the globe
  • Observations facilitate advances in spectroscopy and retrievals needed for precise emissions measurements from MethaneSAT
  • By itself represents a major advance in the state of the art of airborne remote sensing of CH4 and CO2
