Quantifying Fire Emissions & Associated Aerosol Species using Assimilation of Satellite Carbon Monoxide Retrievals

Wildfires tend to be more intense and hence costly and are predicted to increase in frequency under a warming climate. For example, the recent August 2015 Washington State fires were the largest in the state’s history. Such large fires impact... Read more

Reductions in Anthropogenic Carbon Monoxide Emissions Lead to Shorter Methane Lifetimes in the Atmosphere

About half of atmospheric carbon monoxide (CO) is from direct (CO) emissions that are due to incomplete combustion and are related to both natural (e.g. wildfires) and anthropogenic activities. The remainder of CO in the atmosphere is produced from the... Read more
