FluxSense, Inc. Solar Occultation Flux(SOF) by Open-Path Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectrometry(OP-FTIR) and Ultraviolet Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (UV-DOAS) Measurements
A panel with expertise in optical remote sensing and realworld source measurements (“Panel”) was assembled with the purpose of providing an independent critical review of the FluxSense method and its ability to quantify facility-wide emissions (i e , fluxes) of methane (CH4), non-methane volatile organic compounds (VOCs), benzene, BTEX (i.e., benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes), nitrogen oxides (NOX), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). This report is a product of that review.
