CAMS monitors long-range transport of Siberian wildfire smoke
20 July 2018
Since spring, several wildfires in central Russia and Siberia have sent huge quantities of smoke into the atmosphere, which travelled several thousands of kilometres across the Arctic Ocean to Alaska and North-West Canada and eventually the west coast of Greenland.
This long-range movement of smoke was predicted five days in advance by the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS).
