Atmospheric applications using Sentinel-5P Data

ISAE-SUPAERO is a leading aerospace engineering school located in Toulouse, France.

On Wednesday February 26th 2020, RUS Copernicus will provide there a half day hands-on training session where the ISAE students will access from own laptop a Virtual Machine to exploit the open source toolboxes available in the RUS environment to download and process Sentinel 5-P data.

RUS Training Course

Sentinel-5P was launched in October 2017. Its main purpose is to screen the Earth’s atmosphere and quantify different pollutants (CO, NO2, SO2, O3, aerosols…) with a great accuracy and spatial resolution. It also provides measurement continuity with precedent and ongoing atmospheric spatial missions (OMI, IASI and SCHIAMACHY). The data recorded by this satellite are free of use and present a great interest to globally monitor air quality, greenhouse gases emissions and detect polluting events.

This half day training will focus on the processing of Sentinel-5P data for different types of trace gas and aerosol in the atmosphere. The specifically designed BEAT Open Toolbox will be used throughout the workshop. The participants will learn to monitor both daily pollution and polluting events based on processed Sentinel-5P data.

The ISAE students will first get familiar with the structure of S5P products. Then they will learn how to create world maps of the pollution caused by a particular type of trace gas from S5P data. They will also learn how to monitor and follow polluting events (such as rainforest fires, pipeline emissions) thanks to the daily measurement and global coverage of Sentinel-5P. They will eventually learn how to quantify the pollution in a city during distinct parts of the year.

Software: BEAT Toolbox


Attendees must bring their own laptop/mouse and will be provided with access to the RUS platform Virtual Machine.

Cost & Participation

Attendance to the training course is free of charge, however travel and accommodation expenses are excluded.

Participation to the course is open to ISAE-SUPAERO students.
