The concentration and global transport of carbon monoxide pollution from fires burning in Russia, Siberia and Canada is depicted in two NASA animations created with data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua spacecraft. The animation focuses on the Russian fires, while the animation highlights the global transport of the pollution across the northern hemisphere, as seen from above the North Pole. The highest concentrations of carbon monoxide are shown in yellows and reds.
