    Welcome to the Second Joint Training Course on Atmospheric Composition   

    16 - 20 November 2020

    The European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecast (ECMWF) with the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) are organising a second joint training course on Atmospheric Composition with a focus on air quality and data interoperability.

    The school will be fully on-line with lectures, discussions and practical sessions. We aim at fully involving participants in an interactive way.

    The specific goals of the course are:

    1. Present the state-of-the-art in air quality monitoring and modelling,
    2. Provide an overview of the different observations, tools and applications,
    3. Enhance the capacity on data access and analysis of existing and new satellite data products and monitoring services,
    4. Foster participants driven personal and team projects.

    We have prepared for you a number of resources that we invite you to look at before the course starts. Here's what you can do on this page:  

  • You may access to the Sentinel 5P data in diverse ways:

    1. With the ESA copernicus scihub 

    Browse the data and select the orbits / variable you would like to download (user and password: s5pguest). Here is also a description of the products.

    2. With the TEMIS KNMI service for NO2 data

    Daily monthly data are available through the TEMIS KNMI service.

    3. Google Earth Engine to view and use TROPOMI S5P

    The main objective of Google Earth Engine (GEE) is to provide easy access to satellite data and a processing platform (cloud) to process the data with your own codes. The datasets are provided as so-called L3 products. This means the satellite data is provided on a fixed latitude-longitude grid. The big advantage of using GEE is that there is no need to download large satellite datasets on your own computer.

    In this course we will focus on NO2 and CO TROPOMI S5P data.

    Tropospheric NO2 as measured by TROPOMI S5P July-Sept. 2018 and visualised using GEE.

    Total column of CO as measured by TROPOMI S5P October 2018 and visualised using GEE.
