Lucy Hutyra and Conor Gately urge cities to show climate progress with data

At The Conversation US, Associate Professor Lucy Hutyra and Postdoctoral Associate Conor Gately advocate for pollution documentation in urban areas. “Over the last decade, our work on urban greenhouse gas emissions has shown that with the right combination of instruments, data and modeling techniques, it is possible to independently quantify carbon dioxide and methane emissions […]

Jeffrey Geddes publishes on geostationary observations of nitrogen dioxide from space

Assistant Professor Jeffrey Geddes has published “Stratosphere-troposphere separation of nitrogen dioxide columns from the TEMPO geostationary satellite instrument” in Atmospheric Measurement Techniques. “Separating the stratospheric and tropospheric contributions in satellite retrievals of atmospheric NO2 column abundance is a crucial step in the interpretation and application of the satellite observation,” Geddes and his colleagues write. Their […]
