This paper presents an analysis of methane emissions from the Los Angeles Basin at monthly timescales across a 4-year time period – from September 2011 to August 2015. Using observations acquired by a ground-based near-infrared remote sensing instrument on Mount Wilson, California, combined with atmospheric CH[subscript 4]–CO[subscript 2] tracer–tracer correlations, we observed −18 to +22 % monthly variability in CH[subscript 4] : CO[subscript 2] from the annual mean in the Los Angeles Basin.
