TROPOMI monitors trace gases and aerosols relevant for air quality and climate

The TROPOMI satellite instrument continually orbits the Earth and takes measurements which allow us to create daily global maps of atmospheric species relevant for air quality and climate monitoring.  These maps are made for a variety trace gases and yield information about aerosol/cloud height and coverage.  This work commissioned and funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Netherlands Space Office (NSO) is carried out by the TROPOMI Mission Performance Center (MPC) consortium as shown in the logo below. This consortium is led by a team working at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) in the R&D Satellite Observations department (R&DSW).
