Applications of Remote Sensing to Air Quality Monitoring

October 5, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am +04
Air pollution has always been considered a major problem worldwide. The formation of air pollutants depends upon the sources of their precursors whether natural or anthropogenic. The level of air pollution, and therefore a measure of air quality, is derived from measurement of concentrations of pollutants such as O3, NO2 and particulate matter (PM). These measurements are usually collected at a limited number of ground-based monitoring stations and may not convey a full characterization of their spatial distribution. This presentation discusses the potential of various remote sensing systems to estimate such measurements and consider their limitations. As an example, an approach to estimate PM10 from MODIS aerosol optical depth over Al Ain region will be detailed and its results discussed.
