Methane (CH4) is a prominent greenhouse gas responsible for about 20% of all atmospheric radiative forcing. As we notice trends in increasing global temperatures, understanding and detecting these emissions has become increasingly important. This requires the creation of robust greenhouse gas plume detectors. Previous work at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory has shown Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) to be an appropriate solution to map methane sources from future imaging spectrometer missions, such as Carbon Mapper. However, current models suffer from a high rate of false positives due to false enhancements in the detected images.We have compiled datasets from two Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer Next Generation (AVIRIS-NG) California campaigns. We then trained a GoogleNet CNN Classifier model on each campaign. The baseline current model uses a Unimodal column-wise matched filter (CMF). This results in a model known to be sensitive to false enhancements, such as water/water vapor, bright/dark surfaces, or confuser materials with similar absorption wavelengths to methane. We first note improvements between the Unimodal CMF model and a new Surface-Controlled CMF model, whose dataset matches that of the Unimodal CMF model, but removes enhancements not matching the absorption wavelength of methane. From this, we note minimal improvement (1% increase in F1 score). We then experiment with various auxiliary products measuring albedo (rgbmu, SWALB), vegetation (NDVI, ENDVI), and water (h2o, NDWI) indices designed to combat issues known to produce false enhancements. After training on these new input representations for both campaigns, we noticed a significant improvement in the multi-channel model’s results. We observe an increase in the F1 score for classifying positive tiles from 0.78 to 0.86 when trained using auxiliary albedo indices, showing promise for future use of auxiliary products in improving methane plume detectors.
