Megacities Carbon Project

The Megacities Carbon Project is being established for the megacities of Los Angeles and Paris, and will leverage robust methods for assessing carbon emissions and rapid improvements in measurement technology to monitor the atmospheric trends of carbon attributed to the world's largest cities.

A key element of the Megacities Carbon Project is JPL's California Laboratory for Atmospheric Remote Sensing (CLARS) on Mt. Wilson overlooking the Los Angeles basin. Observations from CLARS are used to quantify the emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants in LA, and to test new approaches for global measurements from satellites.

Riley Duren (8X) is the Principal Investigator for the Megacities Carbon Project.
