The AVIRIS-NG instrument detected large methane plumes coming from Sunshine Canyon Landfill during its October 2016 overpass. The plumes are shown in a yellow to red gradient, with red representing higher concentrations of methane. Image credit: Cusworth et al. 2020.
NASA's AVIRIS-NG instrument detected multiple massive methane plumes in California and much more.
