Short summary
Methane is the second most important greenhouse gas and a target of new emissions regulations in the United States. Despite its importance, its emissions are poorly understood. In this study, we used a remote sensing instrument located on Mount Wilson to estimate the monthly and annual methane emissions from Los Angeles. Derived methane emissions from Los Angeles showed consistent peaks in late summer/early fall and winter during the study period from 2011 to 2015.
