Description

This dataset provides maps of methane (CH4) plumes along flight lines over identified methane point-source emitting infrastructure across the State of California, USA collected during 2016 and 2017. Methane plume locations were derived from Next-Generation Airborne Visible Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-NG) overflights during the California Methane Survey. The survey was designed to cover at least 60% of the methane point source infrastructure in California guided by the Vista-CA dataset of identified locations of potential methane emitting facilities and infrastructure in three primary sectors (energy, agriculture, and waste). The purpose of the survey was to detect, quantify, and attribute point source emissions to specific infrastructure elements to improve the scientific understanding of regional methane budgets and to inform policy and planning activities that reduce methane emissions.
