RUS Copernicus organises a full day online training session about the processing of Sentinel-5P data to monitor NO2 concentration in the atmosphere.

Sentinel-5P was launched in October 2017 to screen the Earth’s atmosphere and quantify different pollutants with a great accuracy and spatial resolution. The data recorded by this satellite are free of use and highly relevant to globally monitor air quality, greenhouse gas emissions and detect and assess the impact of polluting events.

After a detailed introduction on the Sentinel-5P mission and the associated products, the course, through a hands-on session, will illustrate how they can be used to compute and map NO2 concentration. Comparison will be made over Europe between spring 2019 and spring 2020 to quantify the NO2 pollution drop resulting from the COVID lockdown.

Participants will learn how to explore the RUS environment, access Sentinel-5P data, and use the Jupyter Notebook environment and the specifically designed Atmospheric Toolbox to process them.

Attendance to this remote training session is free but requires registration before 4 February 2021.
