UCI Earth scientists co-write emissions verification report

James Randerson
UC Irvine Earth scientists Michael Prather and James Randerson (pictured) have co-authored a National Research Council report discussing how the U.S. could monitor foreign greenhouse gas emissions if it enters into a new climate treaty. Prather and Randerson wrote report sections related to atmospheric and satellite-based monitoring. The report addresses questions such as: How do we detect how much carbon dioxide is being produced by a power plant in another country if this information is not directly shared with the international community? The UCI scientists are members of the NRC Committee on Methods for Estimating Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
