ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of greenhouse-gas monitoring systems that allow scientists to gauge the success of climate initiatives in Los Angeles, California. It reveals that the city will track the air moving through the basin while balloons and lasers measure the boundary between the pollution over the city and the cleaner air above. Furthermore, the boundary determines the volume of air and the relationship between measured concentrations of carbon dioxide and overall emissions.
