Course Description

Course Description: Fundamentals of electromagnetic radiation and remote sensing. UV-VIS-NIR spectrometers (OMI, SCIAMACHY, GOME, GOME-2) and retrieved pollutants: O3, NO2, SO2, Formaldehyde, Glyoxal, CO, CH4, and aerosols. VIS-NIR Radiometers (AVHRR, MODIS, MISR, MERIS, (A)ATSR(-2), POLDER) and retrieved parameters: Aerosol optical thickness and fine/coarse fraction. TIR Spectrometers (MOPITT, IASI, TES) and Ozone profiles, CO. Active Remote Sensing: Lidars and Radars (CALIPSO, ATLID) and aerosol profiles. Course Objectives: 1. to develop a solid background for the students in remote sensing of air pollution by understanding the fundamentals of remote sensing science which is a state-of-the-art technology in air pollution monitoring. 2. to familiarize the students to the process and use of the remote sensing data for both gasous and particulate pollutants.
