Postdoctoral Research Fellow Evan Sherwin and Assoc. Professor Adam Brandt provide NGI's recent Natural Gas Brief

Methane emissions from the U.S. oil and gas system likely exceed 2% of production. Airplane-based remote sensing tools could detect as much as 50% or more of emissions from oil and gas production and midstream by focusing on “super-emitting” point sources.

Identifying sources of deadly air pollution in the U.S.

New research finds that air pollution from sources in the U.S. leads to 100,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. While about half of all air pollution-related deaths from fine particulate matter result from burning fossil fuels, the remaining are largely from animal agriculture, dust from construction and roads, and burning wood for heating and cooking.
