Your role as a Data Engineer

Title: Large scale data processing for greenhouse gas detections


Abstract: The goal of this project is to develop and maintain a stack for processing a large

amount of satellite images to monitor greenhouse gas at scale.


Since the new regulations following COP decisions, international institutions are eager to monitor greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4) around the world, in a standard and uniform way. Various satellites are already operating to monitor large areas from space and already provide established methodology for emission indicators. The launch of a new generation of satellites (Sentinel-5P) with an increased spatial resolution, let it be possible to refine these indicators and better quantify the sources of emissions. The use of additional satellite sources requires to extend the existing stack in order to integrate new processings

The goal of this project is to detect, quantify and attribute methane leaks at scale. It mixes various data sources (hyperspectral satellite images, weather data, ...) and models (atmospheric), machine learning models). The goal of the internship is to test and deploy these models at scale in a production environment, using relevant continuous integration tools.

The student should be familiar with the basics of data engineering regarding the development and testing part - Python is a requirement. The knowledge of other tools is considered as a plus. Kayrros works in tight partnerships with research labs and academics well-known in this field. Hence, the student will have access to this community throughout her/his internship, as well as a wide range of infrastructure and datasets available on Kayrros Platform for asset monitoring.
