Analysis of NO2 pollution in megacities by Earth Observation

Erbertseder, Thilo and Bergemann, Christoph and Taubenböck, Hannes and Baier, Frank (2016) Analysis of NO2 pollution in megacities by Earth Observation. International Air Quality Conference, 14.-18. Mär. 2016, Mailand, Itlaien.

In this study we investigate the variability and trends of NO2 pollution in 30 megacities by analyzing different Earth Observation data sets. Multi-annual records of tropospheric NO2 from SCIAMACHY (2002-2012) and GOME-2 (2007-2015) are combined with the global urban footprint of each megacity as a proxy for urban growth. The consistent and homogenous data sets enable a global comparison of the findings for the megacities and a classification with respect to their socio-economic development. The possibilities of current and upcoming Earth Observation missions are discussed.
