英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Observations from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI), onboard the NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) Aura satellite, reveal a large SO 2 “hotspot” over Morbi, Gujarat, India, while the available emissions inventories do not report any major sources in this region. There are no industries that are typically associated with the elevated SO 2 such as large power plants, smelters, or oil refineries in the Morbi region. Our analysis shows that the elevated SO 2 source is attributed to the ceramic industries in an area of ~7 × 7 km 2 near the city. OMI-estimated SO 2 emissions from the Morbi ceramic industries have been near or above 100 kt y −1 since 2009, which are similar to emission levels from larger Indian oil refineries (such as Essar and Jamnagar) and power stations...
