Question from a newbie
« on: June 26, 2016, 10:14:46 PM »
I was looking at Climate Reanalyzer last night, checking the CO2, and I saw a blue spot over Russia. I went back and found that in the past few days, I can see blue areas of high-CO2 concentration developing over Russia every so often.

If you look at the attached gif, there's one that pops up at 59.93n, 99.47e on June 22, and another that comes up at 56.50n, 156.80e on the 24th. Both spike to over 450ppmv, then dissipate in the wind currents. The later one recurs in the same spot.

Checking the maps for these areas, there's pretty much nothing there.

Could someone please let me know what these are?

Yup, the second one was a volcano. The first turns out to have been the wildfires north of Lake Baikal.

Thank you!
