A new study from ESRL/GMD (partly supported by CPO's AC4 Program) shows that contrary to recent findings, methane emissions in the United States have not increased significantly in the past decade.
Meet Dr. Kelley Barsanti! She is an Assistant Professor at the University of California Riverside and an affiliate with the Bourns College of Engineering's Center for Environmental Research & Technology (CE-CERT). Read more to learn about her work with AC4 and what success means to her.

She leads a research lab at UC Davis conducting atmospheric chemistry research, and teaches college courses on environmental chemistry. Read more about how she became a chemist and how she feels about being a woman in science.
Read our Women's History Month interview with Dr. Colette Heald, a professor at MIT, the head of the Atmospheric Chemistry and Composition Modeling Group, a PI funded by AC4, and a former NOAA Climate & Global Change Postdoc.
On March 27, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine publicly released a new report on human emissions of methane in the U.S., which was sponsored by NOAA's AC4 program in partnership with DOE, EPA, and NASA. In this recorded briefing, NASEM's committee members summarized current approaches to measuring, monitoring, reporting, and developing inventories of U.S. emissions of methane, followed by a period of Q&A and discussion.
