Aerial showing pollution over Mexico City (DI01474)
Aerial photo taken near Mexico City showing biomass burning and pollution. During the MIRAGE (Megacity Impacts on Regional and Global Environments) field project, scientists investigated the chemical transformation of air pollution as it flows from Mexico City to surrounding regions and the globe as a whole, with an eye toward applying what they learn to megacities around the world.
