Air pollution during the COVID-19 pandemic as seen by satellite

Scientists and engineers from LATMOS-IPSL 1   have produced, together with ULB 2 , animations showing the impacts on air pollution during the COVID-19 pandemic, as seen by satellite throughout the world.


IASI CO and NH3 observations are available, together with TROPOMI NO2 results :


- access to all results

- China

- USA ( East coast - west coast )

- Europe

- France

- Italy

- Russia

- India


 



The IASI mission is a joint mission of Eumetsat and CNES. The TROPOMI mission is part of the EU Copernicus program and is a joint initiative between ESA and the Netherlands. Aeris and Copernicus Open Access Hub provide access to IASI and TROPOMI, respectively. This project has received funding from the IASI-FT advanced ERC grant, from CNES, and from Eumesta trough AC SAF.
