Hi - what an amazing resource!
I was directed to your site from a social media post about S02 emissions from specific places in china. The post was saying that the elevated levels of this specific emission might be down to them cremating bodies on a large scale due to the coronavirus!
I am trying to verify this information. It seems very dubious at first - but I was able to see the very elevated levels concentrated on Wuhan. This entire area is supposed to be on lockdown so I wouldn't expect it to be general industry. Also, the levels are VERY elevated?
As you don't have historical data available I cant see if this is anomalous or not. Maybe you could help me here by providing some historical data - say the last 12 months? (3 months?? if not maybe just 1 month?).
Also, where do you get your raw data for S02 emissions? I am assuming it's from a satellite and through an API or similar?
You can see from the image below that the levels are VERY elevated in 2 very specific locations. And Wuhan is supposed to be on full lockdown. So, at first glance, it does seem to point to something worrying. But I really want to know for sure.
I really want to try to find out if this fake news or real news - thanks in advance.!
