Welcome to the submission area for the Sentinel-5 Precursor Validation Team call.
Within the framework of its Copernicus missions, ESA is pleased to announce the Sentinel-5 Precursor Calibration and Validation Team Call (S5PVT) that aims to engage leading expertise for the Calibration and Validation of the Sentinel-5 Precursor (S5P) in the mission validation team, providing independent experimental data, analysis and recommendations to critically assess the end-to-end performance of the instrument and its products. The main payload of S5P is TROPOMI (TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument), a push broom imaging spectrometer realized by ESA in collaboration with the Netherlands Space Office (NSO). S5P is expected to provide information on atmospheric variables in support of European policies and Copernicus services. The S5p satellite was launched on 13 October 2017 and will provide over 7 years data to the user community.
Sentinel-5 Precursor First Products Release Workshop ,25-26 June 2018,ESA-Esrin,Frascati (Rome),Italy.
Further information about the Sentinel-5P Mission can be found on the ESA Sentinel Online Portal ,the SS5P Mission Description, the User Guide and Technical Guide.
The S5P Document Library provides key documents regarding the algorithms and their verification, including the Algorithm Theoretical Baseline Documents (ATBD) the Product User Manuals (PUM) and the Science Verification Report . Additional information is also available at the KNMI TROPOMI site.
