Information - AS3.16 Satellite observations on Tropospheric Composition and Air Quality, trend analyses and comparisons with models
This session discusses analyses (e.g. trend analyses, inverse modelling) and model comparisons of satellite observations of tropospheric composition and use for climate and air quality research. Over the last decade satellite instruments such as TOMS, GOME, SCIAMACHY and OMI showed that the tropospheric composition can be measured from space. Recently GOME-2 has been launched which will provide another dataset of measurements. Other satellite instruments like MOPITT, TES, AIRS, MIPAS, ACE, and IASI which are operating in the IR also provide information on the troposphere. In this session the comparison of the satellite data with results from atmospheric models is a central theme, as well as use of the data for air quality and climate research.
