Air pollution has a severe impact on health and environment.
Air quality instruments such as TROPOMI onboard Sentinel-5P, enable more detailed than ever detection of:
- pollution emitters at city level
- small-scale atmospheric effects on regional climate change
- aviation hazards due to volcanic eruptions
In order to ensure that products delivered by satellite sensors meet user requirements in terms of accuracy, precision and fitness for purpose, BIRA-IASB developed a robust validation strategy relying on well-established and traceable reference measurements.
