The overaching goal of the project is to develop methods for the detection, quantification and monitoring of methane point emissions using high-resolution hyper- and multispectral satellite data.
Assess the potential and limitations of spaceborne hyperspectral and multispectral missions:
- Quantify detection limits and uncertainties for quantitative methane mapping with hyperspectral data.
- Evaluate the sensitivity of multispectral missions (S-2, Landsat, and WV-3) for methane point emission detection –> Improve retrieval methods.
- Define potential synergies between high-resolution hyperspectral and multispectral data for methane mapping.
- Implementation of a realistic L1B scene simulator.
- Design of new retrieval methods & methane detection limits for both hyper- and multispectral data.
- Successful data analysis over several O&G producing areas from which no high-resolution methane emission survey has been previously performed.
Documents & Project publications
Mapping of methane point source emissions at very high spatial resolution can be of great support in the global methane reduction activities to mitigate climate change.
