Making Sense of Methane Measurement Technologies
Current and emerging methane detection and quantification technologies offer a staggering diversity of services and data products that cover many spatial and temporal resolution orders. They differ just as much in terms of sensitivity, survey speed, and cost. Unfortunately, there is no silver bullet solution, so understanding and selecting among these options can be a daunting task. To make matters worse, the competitive landscape is fierce, and no standards exist for comparing different solutions. Mechanisms for verifying performance are underdeveloped, so vendors are incentivized to overstate their value.
This course will overview the current state of methane measurement, giving participants the ability to clearly understand the value of different approaches for detecting and quantifying methane emissions. Participants will leave this course knowing whether to use methane measurement technologies and how to choose them.
