The satellite will identify countries and companies that emit a lot of carbon

Researchers will launch a group of satellites that will measure emissions of gases that affect the climate. IN

first of all, they will determine the content of carbon dioxide and methane - substances that most affect the atmosphere.

Planet will build and launch about twenty satellites. They will use technology developed by the US space agency over the past decade.

The company noted that a lot of people work in the sky.satellites that monitor greenhouse gases, but their capabilities are imperfect. Most of these spacecraft can track methane semblance over very large areas, but have low resolution. And those systems that are capable of capturing small emissions will not be able to cover the entire territory and return to a certain place in time.

The project works a lot because of the supportcharitable foundations such as the High Tide Foundation and Bloomberg. He also received support from the state of California. State law requires the area to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 and eventually become carbon neutral.

“We cannot achieve these goals without concentrationon methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), ”said Richard Corey, executive director of the California Air Resources Board.
