Abstract

The current discerning capability of nadir viewing satellite instruments is mainly providing information on large volcanic events, such as the Kasatochi 2008 and the Eyjafjöll 2010 eruptions, and areas with high anthropogenic SO2 sources such as Peruvian smeltering regions. Consequently, there exists a constant need to improve the algorithms in order to provide satellite information on the megacities’ SO2 levels for air quality purposes. In the current study, we aim to assess the observational capability of the GOME2/MetopA instrument by analysing the total SO2 load estimated over the extended Balkan region with the use of the high spatial resolution Comprehensive Air Quality Model with extensions (CAMx) modelling results. Two years of satellite and modelling estimates have been analysed so as to pin-point locations of constantly high SO2 loading, locations with a marked seasonal variability as well as locations with high expected loading that might not be visible from the satellite orbit. Regions of specific interest will be chosen for further investigation and algorithm development based on updated modelling input parameters such as the SO2 loading profile.
