Visualization of methane emissions from cattle





A new imaging technique, developed by a team led by  Dr Magnus  Gålfalk at the Linköping University in Sweden and described in Nature Climate Change, allows us to see for the first time where it is being generated.  The video shows methane emissions (shown in purple and green) escaping from a vent in barn of housing 18 cows. This is a major step forward in our management of greenhouse gas emissions from landfill, agriculture, wastewater treatment and any other potential source of the gas.
