Methane Transect Dataset

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This project area “OTM 33 Mobile Emission Measurements” covers research on remote emissions quantification with the various forms of mobile monitoring approaches. There will be multiple data sets included in this project. The metadata and data dictionaries are included with each data set. The data sets with metadata and data dictionaries are as follows:

Methane Transect data Set: The dataset contains mobile methane concentration measurements acquired at 10 samples per second data acquisition rate, collected while driving along transects downwind of a methane source. The data consists of GPS coordinates, methane concetrion data and transect indicators. The controlled methane release experiment was conducted on May 15, 2010 in Durham, North Carolina, where three passes were made for the one CR experiment and the point-source release rate was controlled at S = 0.6 g/s. Additionally, the dataset contains four field studies conducted in Colorado on four separate days in July 2010, with the number of passes for each study ranging from two to five.

This dataset is associated with the following publication: Albertson, J., T. Foster-Wittig, A. Swingler, G. Foderaro, S. Ferrari, S. Amin, M. Modrak, H. Brantley , and E. Thoma. A Mobile Sensing Approach for Regional Surveillance of Fugitive Methane Emissions in Oil and Gas Production. ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY. American Chemical Society, Washington, DC, USA, 50(5): 2487-2497, (2015).
