Greenhouse Gas and Climate Science Measurements Program
The Greenhouse Gas and Climate Science Measurements Program develops advanced measurements and standards aimed toward improving the accuracy of measurements underpinning greenhouse gas emissions data and modelling. Quantitative measurements, resulting from observational networks, includes remote sensing capabilities, surface tower instrumentation, and airborne field campaigns. Numerical simulations and modelling further improve measurement technologies and uncertainty estimates, to develop an internationally recognized emissions inventory.
NIST has established three test beds in U.S. cities to develop and evaluate the performance of advanced measurement capabilities for emissions independent of their origin. These test beds will serve as a means to independently diagnose the accuracy of emissions data obtained directly from emission or uptake sources. Located in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Los Angeles air basin of California, and the U.S. Northeast corridor (beginning with the Washington D.C./Baltimore region), the test beds have been selected for their varying meteorology, terrain, and urban emissions characteristics.
