RUS Copernicus organises a full day hands-on training session focussing on the processing of Sentinel-5P data to monitor atmospheric ozone layer above Antarctica.

Sentinel-5P was launched in October 2017 to screen the Earth’s atmosphere and quantify different pollutants (O3, CO, NO2, SO2, aerosols…) with a great accuracy and spatial resolution. It also provides measurement continuity with precedent and ongoing atmospheric spatial missions. The recorded data are free of use and present a great interest to globally monitor the ozone layer, air quality, greenhouse gas emissions and detect and assess the impact of polluting events.

After a detailed introduction on the Sentinel-5P mission and associated products, you will manipulate Sentinel-5P data to study the outstanding 2020 Antarctic ozone hole and validate your results against the Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS) ozone global analysis products. Python and the Atmospheric Toolbox on the Jupyter Notebook environment will be used throughout the workshop.

Attendance to this remote training session is free but requires registration before 16 April 2021.
