Paper Abstract

Three satellites of the Resurs-P series (№1, №2, №3) aimed for remote sensing of the Earth began to operate in Russia in 2013-2016. Hyperspectral instruments GSA onboard Resurs-P perform routine imaging of the Earth surface in the spectral range of 400-1000 nm with the spectral resolution better than 10 nm and the spatial resolution of 30 m. In a special regime the GSA/Resurs-P may reach higher spectral resolution with the spatial resolution of 120 m and be used for retrieval of the tropospheric NO2 spatial distribution. We developed the first GSA/Resurs-P algorithm for the tropospheric NO2 retrieval and shortly analyze the first results for the most polluted Hebei province of China. The developed GSA/Resurs-P algorithm shows the spatial resolution of about 2.4 km for tropospheric NO2 pollution what significantly exceed resolution of other available now satellite instruments and considered as a target for future geostationary (GEO) missions for monitoring of tropospheric NO2 pollution. Differ to the currently operated low-Earth orbit (LEO) instruments, which may provide global distribution of NO2 every one or two days, GSA performs NO2 measurement on request. The precision of the NO2 measurements with 2.4 km resolution is about 2.5x1015 mol/cm2 (for DSCD) therefore it is recommended to use it for investigation of the tropospheric NO2 in polluted areas. Thus GSA/Resurs-P is the interesting and unique tool for NO2 pollution investigations and testing methods of interpretation of future high-resolution satellite data on pollutions and their emissions.
