Greenhouse Gang

The Department of Energy's (DOE) Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, and Sandia national laboratories, together with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, have joined together to address the increasing need to monitor and analyze the emission of greenhouse gases around the world. Program leaders from the multi-lab team—affectionately known as the "gang of four"—envision a network of sensors to measure the greenhouse gas emissions, and computers to calculate how the emitted gases will move about.
