Short summary
In this work we measure carbon dioxide for the city of Boulder, Colorado, using a novel laser-based instrument. We then use a model to determine the strength of the emissions from the city. Based on our measurement location, we attribute the majority of these emissions to vehicles. We compare our emissions to the city vehicle emissions inventory with good agreement.
