Characterization of Industrial Smoke Plumes from Remote Sensing Data

  title={Characterization of Industrial Smoke Plumes from Remote Sensing Data},
  author={Michael Mommert and Mario Sigel and Marcel Neuhausler and Linus Mathias Scheibenreif and Damian Borth},
The major driver of global warming has been identified as the anthropogenic release of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from industrial activities. The quantitative monitoring of these emissions is mandatory to fully understand their effect on the Earth's climate and to enforce emission regulations on a large scale. In this work, we investigate the possibility to detect and quantify industrial smoke plumes from globally and freely available multi-band image data from ESA's Sentinel-2 satellites… Expand

Pilot-scale evaluation of AMP/PZ to capture CO2 from flue gas of an Australian brown coal–fired power station
Abstract Monoethanolamine (MEA) is a well-established absorption liquid used in post-combustion capture (PCC) technology that has a high rate of reaction with CO 2 . However, an absorption liquidExpand
U-Net: Convolutional Networks for Biomedical Image Segmentation
It is shown that such a network can be trained end-to-end from very few images and outperforms the prior best method (a sliding-window convolutional network) on the ISBI challenge for segmentation of neuronal structures in electron microscopic stacks. Expand
Deep Residual Learning for Image Recognition
This work presents a residual learning framework to ease the training of networks that are substantially deeper than those used previously, and provides comprehensive empirical evidence showing that these residual networks are easier to optimize, and can gain accuracy from considerably increased depth.
