• CH4 emissions from landfills and agricultural operations
• GHG emissions from fugitive and area sources
• CO2 sequestration field monitoring
• Quantification of GHG up-take from soils
• Assessment of whole-site GHG emissions from large industrial facilities
• GHG emissions from small industrial and commercial sources
• Use of surrogates monitoring for estimating GHG emissions
• Integration of GHG experimental and modeling studies
• Measurement related verification requirements for GHG trading markets
