SO2 and BrO emissions of Masaya volcano from 2014 to 2020 F. Dinger, T. Kleinbek, S. Dörner, N. Bobrowski, U. Platt, T. Wagner, M. Ibarra, and E. Espinoza

Short summary
Monitoring magnitude or chemical composition of volcanic gas emissions can help to forecast volcanic eruptions and provides empirical data on the impact of volcanoes on the chemistry in the local and global atmosphere. This study reports and discusses continuous time series of the sulfur and bromine emission fluxes of Masaya from 2014 to 2020. We observed an annual cyclicity in the BrO / SO2 molar ratio, possibly caused by the annual variability in the atmospheric humidity.
