A group of researchers and engineers from Stockholm University and Linkoping University in Sweden have joined forces to create a highly advanced camera that is capable of conducting methane imaging in real time. This may sound unimpressive until you realize that methane is an invisible gas that is very difficult to detect.
The camera is hyperspectral, meaning it can see light spectrums that humans can't. It is capable of detecting gas in even small amounts.
This advanced camera would come of use when monitoring farms, lakes and other environments that are at risk of methane proliferation. This device could go a long way towards mitigating and preventing release of methane gas, which poses a variety of threats to the environment included increasing global warming.
