Short summary
This paper presents retrieval results of NO2 vertical column densities mapped at high spatial resolution over three Belgian cities, based on the DOAS analysis of Airborne APEX observations. A major objective of the study is to assess the technical and operational capabilities of the APEX hyperspectral pushbroom imager to map the NO2 horizontal distribution field over urbanised areas.
