Comparison of resolutions – TROPOMI / Sentinel-5P and GOME-2 / MetOp

The TROPO­MI in­stru­ment on board Sen­tinel-5P has a spa­tial res­o­lu­tion of 7 by 3.5 kilo­me­tres, sur­pass­ing com­pa­ra­ble satel­lites by a fac­tor of 100. For com­par­i­son, the graph­ic shows the spread of the sul­phur diox­ide cloud from the Sier­ra Ne­gra vol­cano on 27 June 2018. On the left is the mea­sure­ment re­sult from TROPO­MI / Sen­tinel-5P and on the right the re­sult from the EU­MET­SAT MetOp-A and MetOp-B satel­lites. The im­age con­tains mod­i­fied Coper­ni­cus Sen­tinel da­ta (2018), pro­cessed by DLR / BI­RA.

The TROPOMI instrument on board Sentinel-5P has a spatial resolution of 7 by 3.5 kilometres, surpassing comparable satellites by a factor of 100. For comparison, the graphic shows the spread of the sulphur dioxide cloud from the Sierra Negra volcano on 27 June 2018. On the left is the measurement result from TROPOMI / Sentinel-5P and on the right the result from the EUMETSAT MetOp-A and MetOp-B satellites. The image contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data (2018), processed by DLR / BIRA.
