Methane ‘super-emitters’ on Earth spotted by space station experiment

Date:

A powerful eye in the sky helps scientists spy on “super emitters” of methane, a greenhouse gas about 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

That observer is NASA’s Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation instrument, or EMIT for short. EMIT has been mapping the chemical composition of dust in the desert regions of the earth since the installation on the outside of the International Space Station (ISS) in July, to help researchers understand how dust in the air affects climate.
