Dr. Stefan Schwietzke conducts research based on atmospheric measurements and modeling to better understand the sources and sinks of methane at the regional and global scale. His current work investigates methane emissions from natural gas, oil, and coal industries. At the regional scale, he participates in field campaigns to collect and analyze air samples from aircraft platforms deployed in areas of intensive fossil fuel production. At the global scale, he draws on on-going observations from global measurement networks. Most of his past research experience lies in the interactions between energy use and climate impacts, including the evaluation of biofuels using life cycle assessment methods.
