An historical overview of important milestones in satellite meteorology is given by Kidder and Vonder Haar ().

In , a new-generation meteorological satellite, Himawari-8, which carried a newly developed sensor, the Advanced Himawari Imager (AHI), was launched and entered service in July (Japan Meteorological Agency a). This instrument enabled the collection of very high-frequency thermal observations that had never before been :// New state‐of‐the‐art satellite measurements of tropospheric column NO 2 from the TROPOMI instrument on‐board Sentinel‐5 Precursor (S5P), launched in October , allow for an unprecedented high resolution (sub‐10km) assessment of UK air quality (AQ) from space. We present the first results from TROPOMI and compare them with its predecessor, the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI GEO-KOMPSAT-2 (Geostationary - Korea Multi-Purpose Satellite-2) Program / Cheollian-2 / GK Spacecraft Launch Mission Status Sensor Complement Ground Segment References.

A Sensitivity Study to Infer Tropospheric Ozone from Atmospheric Thermal Emission at tm Wavelength Measured. with a Nadir View from a Satellite. By Takeshi Imamura and Toshihiro Ogawa Most environmental satellite radiometers use solar reflectance information when it is available during the day but must resort at night to emission signals from infrared bands, which offer poor sensitivity to low-level clouds and surface features. A few sensors can take advantage of moonlight, but the inconsistent availability of the lunar source limits measurement :// The observed radiances from Multifunctional Transport Satellite-1R (MTSAT-1R) are used for this study. MTSAT-1R is a geostationary meteorological satellite covering the east Asian/western Pacific Ocean region. Table 1 summarizes the four IR channels of MTSAT-1R. A clear-sky condition is considered to remove the atmospheric effect on the
