Abstract

Measurements of CO whose principal sources arise from anthropogenic emissions such as biomass burning and forest fires, is very useful for tracing fire emissions in the atmosphere. In this study, intense fires in the southeast part of Russia in May, 2003 are studied with the satellite data from MODIS and MOPITT. The AOD distribution from the MODIS for May, 2003 show stretched regions of high AODs near the Korean Peninsula. The column densities of CO from the MOPITT for May, 2003 also show enhanced values. Correlation between CO and AOD are investigated for the forest fire case. In addition to this correlation between AOD and CO, the loadings of CO into the atmosphere are studied using the 5-year MOPITT data by estimating emission anomaly of CO in 2003 Russian forest fires.
