The speaker for this Webinar is: Dr. Amy Townsend-Small, Associate Professor of Environmental Science, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH--"Methane emissions from the oil and gas supply chain"
- Methane is a greenhouse gas that is up to 86 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. Over the past decade, concentrations have been rising in the atmosphere at increasing rates. However, methane has a complex mixture of natural and anthropogenic sources, and scientists disagree on why concentrations have begun to rise in recent years. In this seminar, IDr. Townsend-Small will discuss her group's research on methane emissions from oil and natural gas sources, including measurements from right here in Ohio. Assessing the largest methane sources is key to controlling the emissions of this dangerous climate forcer.
