What can be seen by IASI during pollution events in East Asia?

Abstract : With two IASI instruments flying on the MetOp-A and MetOp-B satellites, any location on Earth is now observed at least four times per day in the infrared spectral range. All cloud free observations are analysed in near real time mode, and a series of gases can be retrieved from the recorded spectra. We will present a detailed study of what can be detected by IASI during pollution events in East Asia. Record levels of CO, tropospheric O3, SO2 and NH3 are measured, and the reliability of the IASI observations will be investigated: what are the concentrations detected throughout the year and when pollution events occur, to what extent is it matching local PM observations, and what is the sensitivity of the IASI observations at the surface. An in-depth analysis will be presented for CO, with comparisons with IAGOS aircraft data and MOPITT v7 satellite data. IASI and MOPITT data are jointly assimilated in the Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS) to generate CO pollution forecasts. Examples above East Asia will be shown.
