all sectors of the economy and conducting routine and special analyses 
related to GHGs. Projects in this section include developing a

statewide greenhouse gas emission reductions based on ARB adopted 
control measures, analyzing emission trends and scenario forecasts, and 
maintaining the database of greenhouse gas emission inventory. We are

related to the use of geographical information and remote sensing data 
to support ARB's greenhouse gas emission inventory programs. The 
position's primary duties are related to quantification of emissions 
from processes occurring on natural and human lands by employing 
geographical information and remote sensing data, including: Conduct 
geospatial analyses of GHG emissions from natural, agricultural, and 
human lands at "landscape scale." Apply the latest science, data, and 
emerging spatial analytical tools to the compilation of annual GHG 
inventory. Work with other emission inventory specialists to spatially 
analyze carbon stock changes from different land types. Assess the GHG 
emissions impacts of land use changes and project future GHG emissions 
based on emission reduction and planning scenarios. Review the 
development of GHG estimation methods. Work with other inventory 
specialists to develop regional emission estimates based on the 
statewide GHG inventory for both biological and anthropogenic emission 
sources. This position works as part of an interdisciplinary team, and 
it will include working with other state and federal agencies and 
stakeholder groups.

Desirable qualifications include: experience with Geographical 
Information System, emissions estimation methods and models, and working 
with remote sensing and satellite imagery data, understanding of climate 
change and GHG emission inventory process, and strong spatial analysis 
skills. The incumbent should have a strong scientific or engineering 
background, preferably in biogeochemistry, ecosystem science, landscape 
ecology, land or soil science, earth science, engineering, or similar 
disciplines. The ability to analyze data, develop solutions and present
