Tracking CO2 Emission using RS

CO2 emission can be measured using LIDAR. Following are the details of projects and datasets for CO2 Emission:

  1. The Vulcan Project: The Vulcan Project is a NASA/DOE funded effort under the North American Carbon Program (NACP) to quantify North American fossil fuel carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at space and time scales much finer than has been achieved in the past.You can use Vulcan Project’s Google Earth Application for CO2 Emission from Fossil Fuel 2002. It requires Google Earth Plugin.

  3. Experimental Advanced Airborne Lidar (EAARL) and Airborne Lidar Processing System (ALPS) Software: The Experimental Advanced Airborne Lidar (EAARL) system used in this data acquisition effort is uniquely suited to capturing sub-aerial and submerged topography in the same overflight. The voluminous data sets acquired from the EAARL surveys are processed using a Linux-based, custom-built system, Airborne Lidar Processing System (ALPS), developed in a NASA-USGS collaboration. This processing system enables the systematic creation of highly detailed submarine and sub-aerial topographic maps for use in ecological models and environmental stewardship. You can use also USGS- NPS-NASA EAARL Data.

  5. ESA A-SCOPE Project – Advanced Space Carbon and climate Observation of Planet Earth: ESA campaign has demonstrated how a technique using lasers could be employed to measure carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The campaign supports one of the main objectives of the candidate Earth Explorer A-SCOPE mission.
