Aura MLS


Contact: Michael Schwartz for Troposphere, Hugh Pumphrey for stratosphere, mesosphere

CO is a long-lived tracer that is valuable for diagnosing atmospheric transport and identifying the source of air masses.

CO in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere results from the lofting of polluted air from near the Earth's surface. CO in the upper stratosphere and mesosphere has descended from the thermosphere, where it is produced by the photodissociation of CO2.

How it is part of MLS Science Objectives

As a long-lived tracer, CO is valuable for diagnosing atmospheric transport and identifying the source of air masses. The MLS CO data help quantify long-range transport of pollution in the upper troposphere and the impact of upwelling from the troposphere and downwelling from the mesosphere on stratospheric chemistry.

How EOS MLS measures CO

Carbon monoxide is retrieved from radiance measurements of two bands in the MLS 240GHz radiometer.
