 Title Image sequence analysis of satellite NO$_2$ concnetration maps Publication Type Conference Paper Year of Publication 2001 Authors Wenig, M, Leue, C, Kraus, S, Wagner, T, Platt, U, Jähne, B Editor Radig, B, Florczyk, S Conference Name Pattern Recognition, 23rd DAGM Symposium Munich Publisher Springer Abstract Here we describe a new method for the quantification of a global NOx budget from image sequences of the GOME instrument on the ERS-2. The focus of this paper is on image processing techniques to separate tropospheric and stratospheric NO2-colums using normalized convolution with infinite impulse response filters (IIR) to interpolate gaps in the data and average the cloud coverage of the earth, the estimation the NO2 life time and the determination of regional NOx source strengths.
