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.

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..

The Bottom Line on Ground Truth Data
A crucial part of the Climate TRACE approach involves training machine learning algorithms with ground truth data. In this article, we look at what it is; when, where, and how we use it; and some common challenges we’ve had to address..

How to parse asset ownership in Climate TRACE data
Climate TRACE data cover not just where facilities are located, along with estimates of how much GHG emissions they release, but also who owns them. The ownership piece brings important transparency, detail, and accountability to emissions intelligence and climate action..

How to Understand Asset-level Emissions by Country
Since the launch, many users are leveraging the tool to look up the most-emitting facilities in their specific country. Yet sometimes, a funny thing happens: a known source of major emissions for that country appears to be missing from the Climate TRACE asset-level dataset!.
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.
