Tropical Tropospheric Ozone : Implications for Dynamics and Biomass Burning

  title={Tropical Tropospheric Ozone : Implications for Dynamics and Biomass Burning},
  author={Suresh Chandra and Jerald R Ziemke and Pawan K. Bhartia and R. Martin},
This paper studies the significance of large scale transport and pyrogenic (i.e, biomass burning) emissions in the production of tropospheric ozone in the tropics. Using aerosol index (AI) and tropospheric column ozone (TCO) time series from 1979 to 2000 derived from the Nimbus-7 and Earth Probe TOMS measurements, our study shows significant differences in the seasonal and spatial characteristics of pyrogenic emissions north and south of the equator in the African region and Brazil in South… CONTINUE READING
