First ozone and nitrogen dioxide measurements from MetOp-A
« on: January 02, 2008, 03:06:38 AM »

The Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2 (GOME-2) on board MetOp-A launched in October 2006 and currently undergoing commissioning has delivered the first geophysical products for monitoring the Earth's ozone layer, and European and global air quality.

This marks the start of a long-term European commitment to monitor the recovery of the ozone layer and to support the monitoring and forecasting of air quality, both for European citizens and at a global level. The products have been developed by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in partnership with EUMETSAT’s Satellite Application Facility on Ozone and Atmospheric Chemistry Monitoring (O3M SAF), which is coordinated by the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI). The O3M SAF generates, validates, archives and distributes atmospheric ozone, trace gases, aerosols and surface-ultraviolet radiation data products using measurements from MetOp-A.
 
 

GOME-2, a scanning spectrometer, follows on from successful GOME flown on ESA’s ERS-2 satellite launched in April 1995, and provides near-global coverage on a daily basis. The instrument measures profiles of atmospheric ozone and the distribution of other trace gases in the atmosphere. The instrument measures profiles of atmospheric ozone and the distribution of other trace gases in the atmosphere that are related to the depletion of ozone in the stratosphere, and to natural and anthropogenic sources of pollution.

The amount of surface ultraviolet radiation is also derived from GOME-2 measurements. The ozone layer at an altitude of 20-30 kilometres shields the Earth from harmful ultra-violet radiation. However, the depletion of this protective ozone layer, which is most noticeable over the Arctic and Antarctic regions, is of particular environmental concern. The resulting increased levels of ultraviolet radiation reaching the surface of the Earth can cause serious damage to human health, agriculture, forests and water ecosystems. High levels of atmospheric pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide produced by fossil fuel combustion, can damage respiratory health and contribute to acid deposition which harms soil and vegetation.

Hay nako,kung kitang tanan tawo all over the world mag tinabangay ug save sa earth maayo unta.I'm worried for my kids and the future generations kung unsa ilang maabtan sa kalibutan.Basin wala nay tanom.

actually jappy discussion ni karon apan usahay sa Galileo ila jud na ipahibalo bsan naa mo reklamo
nga mga dagkong tawo usahay mahimong controversal sila pero isog na sila
why man dli ipahibalo sa mga tawo,sooner or later mahitabo ug mogawas jud ang matoud right?

Hay naku,naguol jod ko sa atong kalibutan ay.
Labi na dire sa japan nga last summer ni abot ang abo sa china nga color yellow sakit sa mata baya.Samot na'g niabot to sa ibabaw.

daghan mga impt. issues Jappy nga usahay dli sa publikum
to avoid panic reaction, pero naa nakatago net reliable sources
ug kutitob ka hibalo sad ka sa kalihukan sa mga dagkong tae.

im adict of informative issues jud ambot ba anus-a man diay
ta magpakabana? when its too late?
