Short summary
In 2017, an airborne mapping spectrometer (GeoTASO) was used to observe high-resolution column densities of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) over the western shore of Lake Michigan and the Los Angeles Basin. These data were used to simulate the spatial resolution of current and future satellite NO2 retrievals to evaluate the impact of pixel size on comparisons to ground-based observations in urban areas. As spatial resolution improves, the sensitivity to more heterogeneously polluted scenes increases.
