Abstract
People in Huaihe River Basin and Shanghai have been suffering from severe air pollution of nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide due to the development of heavy industry. Traditional ambient monitoring station measurements can provide real-time accurate data, but it is limited due to the less number of monitoring sites. Satellite observation data from remote sensing can provide a wide range opollutants concentrations in long-time sequence. Top-down approaches based on satellite data can be effectively applied to estimate the ground concentrations of pollutants. In this paper, the tropospheric pollutants columns from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument(OMI) were used to analyse the seasonal variation of NO2 and SO2 in 2015. Moreover, the ground-level NO2 and SO2 concentrations of the Huaihe River Basin and Shanghai at this time were estimated by the data and meteorological data. The results show that: the concentrations of NO2 and SO2 are highest in winter, and high-value areas are mainly located in Shandong and Northern Henan. Estimating the ground-level NO2 and SO2 concentrations based on satellite observations is reliable with the validation R2 0.48 and 0.47 respectively. Finally, The spatial distribution of satellite-derived annual mean NO2 and SO2 has a similar characteristics to the satellite columns.
