Happy Anniversary Claire!

"Claire" is the nickname of a mini-satellite officially named GHGSat-D that launched in June of 2016 and shortly thereafter began delivering images using its Headwall hyperspectral SWIR sensor. Claire's mission is to help industries better understand their greenhouse gas emissions, enabling them to control and ultimately reduce them. For example, Claire can help coal mine and landfill operators find significant leaks of methane, then measure those leaks to justify a business case for gas-fired electricity generation.
