Atmospheric & Earth Science 2


Dan is working with David Streets and Zifeng Lu on processing satellite data to better understand the concentrations and trends of several air pollutants including NO2 and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). 

He recently published a manuscript on iusing TROPOMI to estimate NOx emissions over short timeframes:

Eskes (2019), Enhanced Capabilities of TROPOMI NO2: Estimating NOX from North American Cities and Power Plants, 653, 21, 12594-12601,https://​pubs​.acs​.org/​d​o​i​/​a​b​s​/​10​.​1021​/​a​c​s​.​e​s​t​.​9​b​04488

He also recently published a manuscript on inferring CO2 emissions from satellite-derived NOX estimates:

Goldberg, D. L., Z. Lu, T. Oda, L. N. Lamsal, F. Liu, D. Griffin, C. A. McLinden, N. A. Krotkov, B. N., Duncan, D. G. Streets (2019), Exploiting OMI NO2 satellite observations to infer fossil-fuel CO2 emissions from U.S. megacities, Sci. Tot., Environ., 695, 133805, https://​doi​.org/​10​.​1016​/​j​.​s​c​i​t​o​t​e​n​v​.​2019​.​133805.

He also works on developing new strategies to better quantify NO2 and PM2.5 from satellite information. Enhancing NO2 satellite data products will allow scientists to: improve surface level air pollutant estimates used for health assessment studies, evaluate emission inventories on a local scale, and spur the use of satellite data by the air quality policy community.
