SENTINEL 5P is A European satellite owned bu ESA that will collect daily air quality measurements over every major city on Earth. Assembled in Britain with a significant Dutch contribution, the Sentinel 5 Precursor satellite will measure greenhouse gases with unrivaled precision, mapping atmospheric chemistry in city-sized blocks to help tell policymakers and scientists how air pollution changes day-to-day. During SENTINEL 5P's planned seven-year mission, the satellite's Tropomi spectrometer will detect the levels of trace gases in Earth's atmosphere, such as methane, ozone, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and aerosols. SENTINEL 5P is the sixth satellite added to the Copernicus fleet since launchings began in 2014, joining other spacecraft providing radar and optical imagery of the Earth, and monitoring the health of the world's oceans and ice sheets. ESA and the European Commission will distribute data from Sentinel 5P globally free of charge, keeping with the Copernicus program's open data policy. The measurements will help make more accurate air quality forecasts for cities around the world, and provide valuable data inputs in climate models and climate change research.
