Optimized regional and interannual variability of lightning in a global chemical transport model constrained by LIS/OTD satellite data
Nitrogen oxides (NOx≡ NO + NO2) produced by lightning make a major contribution to the global production of tropospheric ozone and OH. Lightning distributions inferred from standard convective parameterizations in global ...
Global Budget of Ethane and Regional Constraints on U.S. Sources
(American Geophysical Union, 2008)
We use a 3-D chemical transport model (the GEOS-Chem CTM) to evaluate a global emission inventory for ethane (C2H6), with a best estimate for the global source of 13 Tg yr−1, 8.0 Tg yr−1 from fossil fuel production, 2.6 ...
Inventory of Boreal Fire Emissions for North America in 2004: The Importance of Peat Burning and Pyro-Convective Injection
(American Geophysical Union, 2007)
The summer of 2004 was one of the largest fire seasons on record for Alaska and western Canada. We construct a daily bottom-up fire emission inventory for that season, including consideration of peat burning and high-altitude ...
Ozone-CO Correlations Determined by the TES Satellite Instrument in Continental Outflow Regions
(American Geophysical Union, 2006)
Collocated measurements of tropospheric ozone (O3) and carbon monoxide (CO) from the Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES) aboard the EOS Aura satellite provide information on O3-CO correlations to test our understanding ...
