Measurements Of Pollution In The Troposphere (MOPITT)

The MOPITT Mission

MOPITT is an instrument flying on NASA's EOS Terra spacecraft, measuring tropospheric carbon monoxide (CO) on the global scale. MOPITT measurements enable scientists to analyze the distribution, transport, sources and sinks of CO, a trace gas produced by methane oxidation, fossil fuel consumption and biomass burning. MOPITT has been operational since March 2000.
