Carbon dioxide emissions increased in East Asia (right) at an average rate of 9.8% per year from 2003 to 2011, but nitrogen oxides increased by ‘only’ 5.8% per year. This indicates a use of cleaner technology in East Asia. North America and Europe, however, show slightly decreasing trends for both gases. The maps show the corresponding spatial pattern as obtained from the satellite data: red corresponds to regions with high values of NOx and CO2, while blue indicates background values.

Measuring Carbon Dioxide and Nitrogen Dioxide Trends with Remote Sensing

Researchers from the University of Bremen published in Nature Geoscience the results of an effort to implement a top-down approach using data acquired remotely.

Mapping Global Carbon Dioxide Emissions

Researchers recently published the results of developing a system for measuring global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the Journal of Geophysical Research.  Named “Fossil Fuel Data Assimilation System” or FFDAS, the system is able to quantify at the city level fifteen years of CO2 emissions from 1997 – 2009.  The research represents […]
