Ozone hole over the Antarctic

The Sen­tinel-5P mis­sion will pro­duce a com­plete glob­al at­mo­spher­ic com­po­si­tion dataset over the course of each day. The DLR Earth Ob­ser­va­tion Cen­ter (EOC) cre­ates dif­fer­ent prod­ucts from the da­ta, which are made avail­able no lat­er than three hours af­ter the mea­sure­ments were per­formed. The ex­am­ple here shows the dis­tri­bu­tion of ozone over the south­ern hemi­sphere on 9–10 Novem­ber 2017. The very thin ozone lay­er (blue) over the Antarc­tic is par­tic­u­lar­ly no­tice­able.

The Sentinel-5P mission will produce a complete global atmospheric composition dataset over the course of each day. The DLR Earth Observation Center (EOC) creates different products from the data, which are made available no later than three hours after the measurements were performed. The example here shows the distribution of ozone over the southern hemisphere on 9–10 November 2017. The very thin ozone layer (blue) over the Antarctic is particularly noticeable.
