Presentation Transcript

  1. Tropospheric NO2 measured by satellites— closing remarks — • Retrieval of trop NO2 has evolved considerably over the past eleven years • Large differences remain • In spite of that, trop NO2 is used successfully in many applications • Much more data is available with OMI and now also GOME-2 • We want to understand the differences, in order to: • improve the retrieval • know how we can use the data in applications • Estimate uncertainties and their characteristics • optimise future satellite missions Tropospheric NO2 measured by satellites

  2. Tropospheric NO2 measured by satellites— Main recommendations and follow-up activities — • Intercomparison of different retrieval methods. Objective: to understand and quantify the effect of the different retrieval choices on trop NO2 values and accuracies. Organisation: • Slant columns: retrieval groups • Final product, incl AMFs: Ron Cohen • Need for high spatial resolution input of surface albedo, aerosol, clouds, surface pressure/terrain height into the retrieval • Validation campaign to assess the accuracy of (mini-) MAXDOAS and NO2 lidar. This should include accurate in-situ tropospheric profiles, which we don't have yet! (Folkard Wittrock / Ankie Piters) Tropospheric NO2 measured by satellites

  3. Tropospheric NO2 measured by satellites— Main recommendations and follow-up activities — • Make all validation data easily accessible • Provide harmonized NO2 data sets based on existing networks (GEOMON) • Recommend use of remote sensing instruments (e.g. MAXDOAS) in existing airquality networks. • Provide Averaging Kernel in satellite products and make use of it • Better assess uncertainty in top-down emission estimates(uncertainties both due to model and retrieval errors).Investigate implications of limited model resolution, e.g. onNO2-OH coupling relevant for NO2 lifetime • Exploiting the higher spatial resolution possible with OMI (down to 5km) Tropospheric NO2 measured by satellites
