Short summary
An airborne spectrometer was used to produce a high spatial resolution (80 x 20 m) map of nitrogen dioxide over Leicester City (UK) and the surrounding countryside. Clear local hotspots due to traffic, industrial activity and power generation are observable, as are comparative reductions over parks and rural areas. A positive temporal gradient was also observed over the 2-hour flight, possibly indicating traffic build-up over time.
