Main image left: Persistent methane hotspot (central red area) over Los Angeles basin from September 2011 through October 2013 detected by a prototype NASA satellite instrument at NASA's California Laboratory for Atmospheric Remote Sensing (CLARS) on Mt. Wilson (Wong et al., ACP 2015). CLARS observations of the Los Angeles basin are ongoing.
