MOPITT Featured Articles
Fourteen Years of Carbon Monoxide from MOPITT : Image of the Day - Concentrations of the gas, which is produced by burning carbon-based fuels, have decreased since 2000.
Nature's Contribution Researchers investigate how much wildfires contribute to pollution, and how far this pollution can travel.
Fires and Thick Smoke over South America : Natural Hazards - Places where MOPITT could not collect enough data to make an estimate of carbon monoxide (probably due to clouds) are gray.
MOPITT Views North America : Image of the Day - Measurement of Pollution in the Troposphere, MOPITT, measures two important pollutants in the Earth’s atmosphere—carbon monoxide (CO) and methane.
MOPITT First Light Image : Image of the Day - MOPITT measures radiances in several channels to determine the amount of carbon monoxide (CO) and methane in the atmosphere.
MOPITT Views Carbon Monoxide Concentration : Image of the Day - During the time these data were collected by MOPITT, there were widespread wildfires across Montana and Idaho.
Carbon Monoxide from Tropical Fires : Natural Hazards - The Terra MOPITT sensor observed large plumes of carbon monoxide produced by biomass burning in South America and Africa in early August 2004.
Bushfires Raging in Southeast Australia : Natural Hazards - Data taken by the Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT) instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite have been combined for 6 days from January 15-20, 2003.
Longstanding Carbon-Monoxide Measuring Instrument MOPITT Celebrated - MOPITT’s 17 years of continuous data provide the most comprehensive direct measurements of this air pollutant, which has truly unlocked a pathway for groundbreaking studies of air pollution transport and atmospheric chemical processes.
