The Environment Agency and National Centre for Earth Observation are currently delivering a JNCC Copernicus User Uptake project investigating whether the Sentinel-5P TROPOMI instrument can be used to detect methane from regulated sources. This finding of this, and other current EA work on the measurement of air pollutants by satellites, will be shared at an online workshop on 29 September 2020 (0930 – 1630). The workshop will also be an opportunity to gather and share best practice on the use of Sentinel-5P TROPOMI and other satellite air quality (AQ) and greenhouse gas (GHG) data, with a focus on regulatory activities. The event is aimed at regulators and other potential end-users of satellite data.

The content of the day will include:

  • An introduction to the TROPOMI AQ and GHG products
  • Signposting of future developments in AQ and GHG satellite capabilities
  • The Environment Agency’s experiences in developing a capability to use TROPOMI data
  • Results of a number of case studies using TROPOMI and other satellite AQ and GHG measurements
  • Opportunities for two-way discussion with an expert panel

The workshop will contain presentations from the European Space Agency, The National Centre for Earth Observation, the Environment Agency & UCL.

Registration and participation is free but you need to register via our EventBrite page to attend. The registration page contains a draft agenda for the workshop.

This workshop is an output from the Copernicus User Uptake project. which is financed by the European Commission under the FPA no.: 275/G/GRO/COPE/17/10042
