GeoSCIA lite – Mission Goal Improved Monitoring and Forecast of Air Quality over Europe via hourly measurements of the composition of the tropopsphere (O 3, NO 2, SO 2, HCHO, H 2 O, clouds, aerosol) with 10 km x 10 km spatial resolution
GeoSCIA lite Mission Profile The First Geostationary Atmospheric Chemistry Mission Primary Products: hourly synoptics maps of O 3, NO 2, SO 2, HCHO, H 2 O, clouds and aerosol over Europe pre-operational demonstration of user services (EUMETSAT, GMES Atmosphere) strong scientific value (transport and transformation in the troposphere) Value Added Products (Air Quality Index, UV-Index, Health warnings, etc.) by combining GeoSCIA lite data with data from other sources via data fussion and assimilation Measurements from GEO of European Area (10°W-20°E, <5°NS) with UV + VIS + NIR nm, 755 – 775 nm high spectral0,2 - 0,5 nm high spatial 10 x 10 km temporal resolution 60 minutes Mission Duration: 3 years +2yrs extension (launch in 2009)
SCIAMACHY: trop. NO 2, Monthly Mean GeoSCIA lite shall provide this type of data approx. every hour during daytime with nearly an order of magnitude better spatial resolution
Research and Application Areas l Air quality monitoring and forecast l Detection and surveillance of pollution; l Control of air pollution emissions and their transboundary transport l UV radiation monitoring and forecasting; l Improve Emission Inventories. l Transport and Transformation in the Troposphere lIndustrial Pollutions lLink between tropospheric chemistry and climate change Primary Objectives Secondary Objectives
Involvement of End-User “End-User-Type” Application Areas lHealth Warning (Air Quality, UV) lTransboundary Transport of Pollutants lEU Directives l“GMES Type” End-Users End Users: lEU lEUMETSAT lEnvironmental Agencies (regional, national, EU) lNational Weather Services l…
