This study shows the correlation between large fires emissions and Carbon Monoxide estimated by the atmospheric sensor MOPITT (Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere) onboard Terra satellite. The zone analyzed is the Iberian Peninsula, Spain and Portugal, during the summer season. The CO is a very important trace gas produced by forest fire emissions and its role in the cycle of atmospheric carbon is very relevant. This study is focused on two main topics: the assessment of dispersion of CO emissions caused by large fires and the study of fires series and its CO emissions.
