Topic 2d – Part 1: Air quality, NO2, CO & the ozone layer
Satellites can measure lots of different sources of atmospheric pollution, such as Nitrogen Dioxide, Ozone, Carbon Monoxide and Particulate Matter. And from these measurements, data products can be produced. Data products are the end product that is made available to users after the analysis of the satellite measurement data or forecast system modelling, for example, is complete.
Data products are extremely important for a range of different users, particularly in order to manage air quality as it has enormously negative effects on human and environmental health.
In this video Dr Mark Parrington talks about data products at CAMS, how satellite data is validated, and looks at three examples of a data product.
