Part 1: Measuring Urban GHG Emissions and Concentrations


Cities are major sources of carbon emissions due to the concentration of human activities. Traditional methods of urban carbon emission estimates leave much to be desired because they are based upon incomplete information, proxy estimations, simplified models, and indirect measurements resulting in partial information that is of limited value for decision making.

Direct emissions measurements, by contrast, provide real data that can lead to actionable insights. For example, direct measurements can help plan emission reduction efforts for the greatest effect, and then measure the results of local emission reduction activities. This information could also be useful for future planning, zoning, funding/investments, transportation decisions, policies, regulations, and safety among others for urban development at local and national levels.

In this webinar, we describe how to use flux measurements in these applications.
