Short summary
This study demonstrated the potential use of MOPITT CO measurements to better understand the CO sources over Alberta. The climatological time curtain plot and spatial maps for CO over northern Alberta indicate the signatures of transported CO for two distinct biomass burning seasons: summer and spring. Northern Alberta shows stronger upward lifting motion which leads to larger CO total column values, while the poor dispersion in central and southern Alberta exacerbates the surface CO pollution.
