As global emissions of greenhouse gas continue to rise, researchers need to find out how much greenhouse gas is emitted and absorbed worldwide for global climate change mitigation. Dr. Tomohiro Oda of the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) in Maryland has done so by combining emission data with night-time observations from satellites. Through this work, his team has now produced global maps that distinguish sources of carbon at unprecedented resolutions. Here is the link to the story: https://www.scientia.global/wp-content/uploads/Tomohiro_Oda/Tomohiro_Oda.pdf
