Learn all about atmosphere monitoring

As you may know, last year we ran a Massive Online Open Course (MOOC), together with the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), on how we monitor the planet’s atmosphere🌍 with satellite🛰️ and ground data📡.

Air quality and pollution are subjects often mentioned in relation to our environment, but how can we really know how good or bad the air we breathe is?

How do we check on our levels of pollution?

How do satellites “see” our atmosphere and what do they tell us about it?

How do we use all of the is information to improve our environment?

This and many more burning questions were answered during this five-week course.

The lessons were divided into five weeks and included the following themes:

  • Threats to the atmosphere and why monitoring matters
  • How data from the space and ground-based monitoring networks are used by the Copernicus atmosphere monitoring service
  • Air quality and pollution types
  • Satellite monitoring and what we measure

The good news is that all of the lessons📜 and material📖 are now accessible on a stand-alone website, so you can check them anytime you like💡!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us!
