This effort mainly involved end-user support activities for the TROPOSAT community, for obtaining supportive data from the EMEP and NILU/NADIR databases. The EMEP database (Co-operative programme for monitoring and evaluation of the long-range transmission of air pollutants in Europe) contains long term NO2, ozone, SO2, VOC and aerosol measurements from about 100 European sites that can be used for selected test cases. Data available on the NILU/NADIR database includes ozone sondes for “case study” satellite and model validation of ozone in the free troposphere over Europe. In addition, European NDSC ground-based total column DOAS and FTIR measurements can assist in the determination of pollution episodes. Such data can be used for “case study” validation of satellite instruments such as GOME, SCIAMACHY and MIPAS. The data can also be used for model validation when used in combination with various modelling activities within the TROPOSAT project.
