The Status of the Sentinel-5 Precursor Mission and First Results

The Sentinel-5 Precursor mission is the first atmospheric Copernicus mission and was successfully launched on 13th October 2017. The mission provides daily global information at unprecedented spatial resolution (~7x3.5km2) on trace gases and aerosols important for air quality, climate forcing and the ozone layer. The only payload of the mission is the TROPOMI instrument (co-funded by ESA and the Netherlands), which is a nadir push-broom spectrometer measuring in the ultraviolet, visible, near-infrared and the shortwave infrared. The selected wavelength range allows for the observation of key atmospheric constituents including O3, NO2, CO, SO2, CH4, CH2O, aerosols and clouds.
