A very nice work by Mengyao Liu et al. (2019), from Peking University in Beijing, China, has just been published in the Atmospheric Measurement Techniques (AMT) journal, on which I am co-author!
This study evaluated the possibility to improve OMI tropospheric NO2 retrieval over China by creating and exploiting an aerosol vertical profile climatology database from 9 years of CALIOP observations. Among other elements, it shows the potential benefits to use satellite observations in a synergistic way (OMI–MODIS-CALIOP) and how to constrain better aerosol models in view of correcting aerosol scattering and absorption effects in UV-vis satellite measurements.
This notably leads to an update of the POMINO dataset from Lin et al. (2014, 2015).
