Space-based quantification of per capita CO2 emissions from cities

Urban areas are currently responsible for ∼70% of the global energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and rapid ongoing global urbanization is increasing the number and size of cities. Thus,

Observing carbon dioxide emissions over China's cities and industrial areas with the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2

Abstract. In order to track progress towards the global climate targets, the parties that signed the Paris Climate Agreement will regularly report their anthropogenic carbon dioxide ( CO2 ) emissions

Anthropogenic CO2 emissions assessment of Nile Delta using XCO2 and SIF data from OCO-2 satellite

We estimate CO2 emissions from the Nile Delta region of Egypt, using over five years of column-averaged CO2 dry air mole fraction (XCO2) data from the NASA’s OCO-2 satellite. The Nile Delta has

Challenges in Monitoring Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations in Seoul Using Low-Cost Sensors

With the increasing importance of monitoring and verifying urban CO 2 concentrations to mitigate carbon emissions from cities, a high-resolution ground networks of low-cost CO 2 sensors are emerging

Can a regional-scale reduction of atmospheric CO2 during the COVID-19 pandemic be detected from space? A case study for East China using satellite XCO2 retrievals

Analysis of a small ensemble of OCO-2 and GOSAT satellite retrievals of column-averaged dry-air mole fractions of CO2 shows considerable month-to-month variability and significant differences across the ensemble of satellite data products analysed.

Urban CO2 Emissions: A Global Analysis with New Satellite Data

The Policy Research Working Paper Series disseminates the findings of work in progress to encourage the exchange of ideas about development issues. An objective of the series is to get the findings

Anthropogenic carbon dioxide source areas observed from space: assessment of regional enhancements and trends

Abstract. Urban areas, which are home to the majority of today's world population, are responsible for more than two-thirds of the global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. Given the ongoing

Direct space‐based observations of anthropogenic CO2 emission areas from OCO‐2

Anthropogenic CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion have large impacts on climate. In order to monitor the increasing CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere, accurate spaceborne observations—as

Space‐based observations of megacity carbon dioxide

Urban areas now house more than half the world's population, and are estimated to contribute over 70% of global energy‐related CO2emissions. Many cities have emission reduction policies in place, but

A Lagrangian approach towards extracting signals of urban CO2 emissions from satellite observations of atmospheric column CO2 (XCO2): X-Stochastic Time-Inverted Lagrangian Transport model (“X-STILT v1”)

Abstract. Urban regions are responsible for emitting significant amounts of fossil fuel carbon dioxide (FFCO2), and emissions at the finer, city scales are more uncertain than those aggregated at the

Network design for quantifying urban CO 2 emissions: assessing trade-offs between precision and network density

Abstract. The majority of anthropogenic CO2 emissions are attributable to urban areas. While the emissions from urban electricity generation often occur in locations remote from consumption, many of

Toward anthropogenic combustion emission constraints from space‐based analysis of urban CO2/CO sensitivity

We explore the value of multispectral CO retrievals from NASA/Terra Measurement of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT v5), along with Atmospheric CO2 Observations from Space (ACOSv2.9) CO2

Surface observations for monitoring urban fossil fuel CO2 emissions: Minimum site location requirements for the Los Angeles megacity

The contemporary global carbon cycle is dominated by perturbations from anthropogenic CO2 emissions. One approach to identify, quantify, and monitor anthropogenic emissions is to focus on intensely

Analysis on the variations of atmospheric CO2 concentrations along the urban–rural gradients of Chinese cities based on the OCO-2 XCO2 data

ABSTRACT Anthropogenic CO2 emissions contribute the most to the growth of atmospheric CO2 concentrations. These emissions are largely concentrated in urban areas where human activities are intense.

Long-term urban carbon dioxide observations reveal spatial and temporal dynamics related to urban characteristics and growth

A unique decadal record of atmospheric CO2 from five sites with contrasting urban characteristics that show divergent trends in CO2 emissions across a city demonstrates that CO2 monitoring networks can provide insight into urban carbon cycle processes and provide policy-relevant information to urban stakeholders.
