Executive editors: Thomas Wagner, Hartwig Harder, Joanna Joiner, Paolo Laj & Andreas Richter

Atmospheric Measurement Techniques (AMT) is a not-for-profit international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of advances in remote sensing, as well as in situ and laboratory measurement techniques for the constituents and properties of the Earth's atmosphere.

The main subject areas comprise the development, intercomparison, and validation of measurement instruments and techniques of data processing and information retrieval for gases, aerosols, and clouds. Papers submitted to AMT must contain atmospheric measurements, laboratory measurements relevant for atmospheric science, and/or theoretical calculations of measurements simulations with detailed error analysis including instrument simulations. The manuscript types considered for peer-reviewed publication are research articles, review articles, and commentaries.

12 Apr 2021 High-frequency monitoring of anomalous methane point sources with multispectral Sentinel-2 satellite observations

Satellites can detect methane emissions by measuring sunlight reflected from the Earth's surface and atmosphere. Here the authors show that the European Space Agency's Sentinel-2 twin satellites can be used to monitor anomalously large methane point sources around the world, with global coverage every 2–5 days and 20 m spatial resolution.
