Remote Sensing Geographic Information System

Satellite observations providing a global survey of the composition of biomass burning plumes and their dispersal in the global atmosphere will become available by the middle to late 1990s and will be an important contribution to this task. Global mapping of CO and O3 columns can be achieved by the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME) and Scanning Imaging

Absorption Spectrometer for Atmospheric Chartography/Chemistry (SCIAMACHY) sensor, scheduled for inclusion on the ESA ERS-2 (European Space Agency Remote Sensing Satellite) in 1993-94 and/or later launches. Global mapping CO is available on the EOS-A platform in the late 1990s, using the MOPPITT (Measurement of Pollution in The Troposphere) or TRACER sensors. The sensor TES, planned for launching on the EOS-B platform, will provide horizontal and vertical mapping of a number of trace species including CO, O3, NOx and HNO3.
