Description:

The final deployment in the DISCOVER-AQ1 series of air quality field campaigns focused on the Northern Front Range of Colorado including the Denver Metropolitan Area in July-August 2014. The overarching goal of these campaigns was to improve the interpretation of satellite observations to diagnose near-surface air quality conditions. This called for observations to be combined from multiple perspectives that included ground-based as well as airborne in situ and remote sensing measurements. These observations were collected to demonstrate how future geostationary satellites could provide information of direct benefit to agencies responsible for monitoring and regulating air quality. This article focuses specifically on measurements of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), which are critical to understanding the photochemical production of ozone (O3).
