In June of 2016, Dr. Helen Worden became the U.S. Principal Investigator for MOPITT. She is interested in multi-decadal trends of carbon monoxide that indicate changing emissions of pollution with global and regional implications. Her goals for the MOPITT data products are to have a fully characterized long-term archive of atmospheric CO observations with documented precision and bias that can be used to study changes in atmospheric chemistry and emissions of pollution.
