Mapping Methane Emissions Across California

Map of California's methane emissions.

Vista-CA provides locations of methane (CH4) emitting facilities and infrastructure in the State of California. In this figure, the distribution of digesters, feed lots, and dairies across the San Francisco Bay Area and Central Valley are shown.

The Vista-CA dataset provides locations of potential methane (CH4) emitting facilities and infrastructure across the state of California.

Methane Point-Source Emissions

 AVIRIS-NG Flight Lines

Example of AVIRIS-NG flight lines over the southern San Joaquin Valley, Kern County, CA, in Fall 2016 and the Vista-CA potential methane emitting facilities and infrastructure for the three primary sectors (energy, agriculture, and waste).

Maps of methane plumes were derived from Next-Generation Airborne Visible Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-NG) flights over California.
