Fassungslos verfolgen wir die apokalyptischen Nachrichten und Bilder in den Medien. But as negotiators at this month's climate summit in Katowice, Poland, puzzle over how to ensure countries provide accurate emissions data, a host of international agencies and private companies are once again touting space-based monitoring as an aid, if not a replacement, to self-reported figures.

So-called emissions inventories are key to implementing the Paris climate accord, but until now there's been no international standard for them, let alone independent oversight. Each country reports data, often years-old estimates, which are used to determine whether they're doing enough to cut emissions. According to a recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, emissions of the most abundant greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, would need to be reduced to a level the planet can absorb -- known as net zero -- by to keep global warming at 1.

But, she added, "It's like a Russian doll. You start from the global observation, then you go down to regional observation and to local observation. This "eye in the sky" is designed to observe carbon dioxide. It's far from settled. The effort to inventory the world's greenhouse gas emissions has taken on an added urgency amid concerns that some gases may not yet be apparent. Greet Maenhout, a scientist at the European Commission's Joint Research Center in Ispra, Italy, said it was only recently discovered that coal mines leak carbon dioxide.

The Commission has funded several satellites to monitor whether European Union member states are meeting their commitment to reduce greenhouse gases by by 40 per cent compared to levels.

While satellites on their own can't provide accurate emissions figures from afar, their advantage lies in their consistency, said Claus Zehner, manager of the European Space Agency's Sentinel-5P mission. Observations have shown a decline in sulfur dioxide emissions over China over the past decade, compared with an increase over India, indicating that Beijing is acting to reduce pollution, said Zehner. Such results, combined with the fact that new instruments are able to collect data with increasingly fine resolutions, are bound to worry governments wary of having others peer into their territory.

Previously unpublished measurements of methane captured by Sentinel-5P and its predecessor Sciamachy show a worldwide increase in atmospheric levels of this potent greenhouse gas, particularly in industrialized countries and emerging economies. Japan's space agency just launched GOSAT-2, to measure carbon dioxide and methane, while the European Space Agency is preparing to send a dedicated carbon dioxide observer, Sentinel-7, into orbit in Despite the current U. Ultimately, scientists argue that since space-based measurements are on the rise, it makes sense to share the data and work together.

Experts say precise country-specific emissions accounting from space remains a long way off.
