WE NEED YOUR HELP: MethaneTracker.org needs your financial help. The situation is, we're running out of room again. We found another hosting company (iweb) where we can get unlimited bandwidth and 8tb for $229, which is just a little bit more of what we're paying now for 1tb (we're paying $200 per month for hosting to Codero) . The last time we changed servers it took 2-3 weeks of two programmers to move to this server (setup and configure all the programs, data, parsers, etc.). We currently have three weeks more before the 1tb disk is filled up. Backuping ALL the imagery from the satellites proved to be heavier than I estimated in terms of storage. The goal is to pay $230 x 6 months and $2,500 to the programmer that I hired the last time (which is the same programmer that helped me built several of the back end modules).

Goal: $4,000
Donated so far: $340 (thanks to all of you who have donated!!!!)

We've added two videos introducing the new Unified Methane Layers functionality. If you're new to the website, please watch these videos before you start working with our tool, as they could be helpful:

This first video, available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1OluDXNXJ4 lays out a few basic concepts and shows methane on the Arctic, deserts and South America; and the second video available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_xaifA5-wI continues with the methane venting episode that started at beginning of February, and it's currently taking place in Antarctica.

Or you can watch them in our blog.
