Planet Earth showing countries.

This time series shows carbon monoxide associated with fires from the Amazon region in Brazil from Aug. 8-22, 2019. Made with data collected from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) on NASA's Aqua satellite, the images map carbon monoxide at approximately 18,000 feet (5,500 meters) altitude. Each 'day' in the series is made by averaging 3-day's-worth of measurements. (Image: JPL-Caltech via NASA)
