Speaker Series: Daniel Jacob -Methane in the climate system: using satellites to locate emissions and enable action

May 8, 2023
11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Women’s Building Formal Lounge
11 AM Lecture | 12 PM Lunch
Vasco McCoy Family Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry and Environmental Engineering at Harvard University

Methane is a major greenhouse gas, and controlling methane emissions is central to a climate policy of avoiding two degrees of danger. But the sources of methane and the causes of the current rise are poorly understood. Here I will show how new satellite observations of atmospheric methane can play a crucial role in better quantifying methane emissions from the global scale down to point sources, providing a global monitoring system in support of climate action.
