This collection contains Sentinel-5 Precursor Level-2 atmospheric measurements derived from the TROPOMI spectrometer. The products consist of the geolocated formaldehyde tropospheric column with a spatial resolution of 7 × 3.5 km observed at about 13:30 local solar time from spectra measured by TROPOMI.
The main objective of the Copernicus Sentinel-5P mission is to perform atmospheric measurements with high spatio-temporal resolution, to be used for air quality, ozone and UV radiation, and climate monitoring and forecasting.
