Most human economic activities release greenhouse gases into the Earth's atmosphere. We use satellites and other remote sensing technologies to spot these emissions activities
…not just the big, obvious things, but also the less obvious emissions that have been hidden in the past..
…and the less obvious ones.
We combine many sources of information because the more we know about each source of emissions, the better we get at finding and accurately measuring them.
Using satellites, direct measurements, and artificial intelligence, we build models that estimate emissions right at the source.
With more and more information streaming in from space and sensors around the globe, our emissions estimates are continuously improving.

Going the Distance with Remote Sensing
Remote sensing involves gathering information from a distance. By detecting and monitoring data without having to make physical contact, remote sensing makes it possible to monitor things as varied as the health of a cornfield, a city’s air pollution, and plumes from a power plant..

Conversations with the Coalition: Marisa Hughes
As part of a new Climate TRACE series, we are interviewing individual coalition members about their work. Up first is Marisa Hughes from the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), where she manages the team of data scientists applying remote sensing and AI to estimate emissions from road transportation..
We make meaningful climate action faster and easier by mobilizing the global tech community to track greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with unprecedented detail and speed and provide this data freely to the public.
