In the wake of a fire, a burn scar appears which takes a long time to heal. This scar is from the Woolsey fire which has taken its toll around Thousand Oaks, California.

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.
