Description

Based on measurements gathered by the Copernicus Sentinel-5P mission between January and April 2019, the image shows high levels of nitrogen dioxide in the Po Valley in northern Italy. Nitrogen dioxide pollutes the air mainly as a result of traffic and the combustion of fossil fuel in industrial processes. It has a significant impact on human health, contributing particularly to respiratory problems.
