In a recently published paper, “Estimating exposure to hydrogen sulfide from animal husbandry operations using satellite ammonia as a proxy: Methodology demonstration,” Bubbleology Research International teamed up with The Aerospace Corporation to investigate a new method of studying gas emissions.
The team used airborne remote sensing, mobile surface concentration measurements, and satellite observations to record emissions from California Polytechnic State University’s research dairy.
This novel method of studying gas emissions mirrors the way these gases can impact human health in real-world settings. Satellite data is collected continuously, which is important when understanding the impact of these gases on people who are exposed to them all of the time (i.e. people in proximity of the dairy). The study is elaborated on within a previous news item: http://bubbleology.com/2019/03/13/california-scientists-develop-new-tool-to-understand-dairy-air-quality/.
