This research is to estimate the carbon prints in the atmosphere West Africa. The imageries was from Measurement of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT). The minima carbon monoxide (CO) concentration can be as low as 100ppvb and can be as high as 400ppbv between November to February every year. However, the increase of CO has increased between 2016 and 2017 by 140%. Hence, the recent invasion of black carbon over the oil rich region of Nigeria in February 2017 can be explained. The poor air quality is responsible for the death of approximately 3 million people each year via acute respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and lung cancer.
