Video 2 of 2. This is a short intro to the Unified Methane Layers functionality on methanetracker.org.

Basically you're looking at two layers per day (0-12z and 12-24z) that contains only the methane over 1950ppb of all 100 layers from IASI for each (am and pm). Those two layers are shown at 6am (0-12z) and 6pm (12-24z) each day. The visualization using the Google Earth plugin allows you to pick a from and to data range that makes it easier to visualize the actual geographical scope of the venting episode, as well as identify specific geographic locations and dates to run a more detailed analysis using the "Individual Methane Layers" functionality.

As part of this demo, we're looking very briefly at the Antarctic Methane Venting Episode that started on February 2013.

EDIT: These are links to papers I mention in the video:

- In this paper, X. Xiong et al. explain IASI's technology and its margins of errors. http://www.atmos-meas-tech-discuss.ne...

- Read the entire plausible explanation to the Antarctic methane venting here: http://methane-hydrates.blogspot.com/...

- L. L. Brothers et al abstract here : http://geology.gsapubs.org/content/ea...

...and interview here: http://www.livescience.com/37517-east...

- The other paper I mention when I talk about the 2.5 Gt destabilizing was by Phrampus & Hornbach and you can find it here:
