Tracking Atmospheric Carbon Monoxide (CO)

Strong wildfires in Western Canada last August generated plumes of smoke and chemical species produced by biomass burning, which traversed North America. In this Sentinel-5P/TROPOMI image of carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations, red/yellow = higher CO concentrations; blue = lower CO concentrations.


NASA’s Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) archives data from the Tropospheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) aboard the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel-5P satellite. Copernicus Sentinel data are processed by ESA and distributed through an agreement with ESA.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
