Air quality monitoring with Sentinel-5p

During this webinar, you will be introduced to Sentinel-5p data and learn how to process the data using the BEAT software. We will demonstrate how using basic analysis, Sentinel-5p data can be used to monitor air quality at regional and global scale. 


Background

According to the World Health Organization, 3.7 million people around the world died in 2012 as a result of outdoor air pollution. Air pollution is a major environmental health problem that affects people in developed and developing countries alike. With millions of people dying prematurely every year as a direct result of poor air quality, it has never been more important to monitor the air we breathe.

Pollutants enter the air from a range of sources, although they are mainly a result of motor vehicle and industrial combustion processes. Governments and decision-makers rely heavily on satellite data and computer models to show how pollution accumulates and how it is carried in the air so that they can develop appropriate mitigation strategies.

Sentinel-5P provides timely data on a multitude of trace gases (CO, NO$_2$, SO$_2$, O$_3$, aerosols…) with a great accuracy and spatial resolution. It also provides with measurement continuity with precedent and ongoing atmospheric spatial missions (OMI, IASI and SCHIAMACHY).
