Paper Abstract

The Tropospheric Monitoring Instrument TROPOMI is ready for system level verification. All sub-units have been integrated and tested and final integration at Dutch Space in Leiden has been completed. The instrument will be subjected to a testing and calibration program and is expected to be ready for delivery to the spacecraft early 2015. Using TROPOMI measurements, scientists will be able to improve and continue the study of the Earth’s atmosphere and to monitor air quality, on both global and local scale.
