# Extended Data Table 1 Comparison of prior and posterior emissions of CO from fire for Southeast Australia

1. Comparison of the November to January 2019–2020 average prior and posterior CO fire emissions (in Tg CO month−1) calculated for the five emission estimates over Southeast Australia. The monthly ± 1σ standard deviations are derived from the assumed error variances. The prior estimates in parentheses represent the inventory flux without the adjustment of zero emissions. The final row displays the model/inversion ensemble average and the ± 1σ standard deviation that depicts the variability across the five model estimates.
