The Sentinel 5 Precursor (S5P), TROPOMI instrument will be launched soon! Check out the launch countdown.
The TROPOMI mission is in the final stages of preparation for launch. The instrument has been taken from storage and is being made ready to ship to the launch site in Plesetsk. In future, the most recent global RGB image from TROPOMI, like this one shown below from VIIRS on 22 May 2013 (from Jackson et al., JGR, 2013) and a table summarizing important mission events and any instrument-wide anomalies affecting the mission will be shown here. All aspects of S5P mission requirements for quality control, calibration, validation, and end-to-end system performance monitoring are addressed by the so-called S5P Mission Performance Centre (MPC), further described here.
