6. Satellite maps tropospheric ozone
Ozone is a key species in the troposphere. A strong greenhouse gas and a main component of photochemical smog, its presence affects the lifetime of methane and many other hydrocarbons. Ozone, a powerful oxidizing agent that quickly reacts with organic compounds to produce toxic species, also is harmful to respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Measurements of ozone are therefore essential for air quality. Noting that satellite observations cover wide areas in short time, Eremenko et al. use data from the infrared atmospheric sounding interferometer (IASI), launched in October 2006 on board Europe's MetOp-A satellite, to compile the first day-by-day tro
