TOP STORY: Carbon monoxide from forest fires
Fires of rare intensities occurred this summer in Siberia and in the Amazon. This animation follows the plumes of carbon monoxide (CO) emitted during the fires and transported by the winds. Compared to 2018, the exceptional magnitude of these fires is clear. CO measurements are from IASI on board the Metop satellites.
