Measurement of Air Pollution from Satellites

Measurement of Air Pollution from Satellites (MAPS) data were collected during Space Shuttle flights in 1981, 1984 and 1994. The main pollutant measured was carbon monoxide (CO). The spatial coverage of the data is 70N to 70S Latitude.

Disciplines:   Tropospheric Composition
