Sentinel-5P (NetCDF)

Provides Sentinel-5P Full Scenes data in NetCDF format.


For more information, please read the block description.

Block type: DATA

This block provides full scenes of Sentinel-5 Precursor data products in netcdf format. Important application areas for Sentinel-5P are monitoring of air quality, ozone and surface UV and climate research. The output format is identical to the unzipped netcdf files that can be acquired from ESA’s Scihub.

Further processing blocks to work with Sentinel-5P Level-2 and Level-3 data will be available shortly on UP42. In the meantime, you can open and visualize the output NetCDF files with the NASA Panoply viewer.

Supported query parameters

For more information, please read the section Data source query filters.

  • ìmagery_layer: A string for the selection of one of the 20 available Sentinel-5 image products (default is "L2__CH4___", corresponding to the Methane (CH4) product). See chapter Imagery layers for more details on the available layers.

  • bbox: The bounding box to use as an AOI. Will return all scenes that intersect with this box. Use only box or intersects.

  • intersects: A GeoJSON geometry to use as an AOI. Will return all scenes that intersect with this geometry. Use only one of intersects or bbox.

  • contains: A GeoJSON geometry to use as an AOI. Will return all scenes that completely cover this geometry. Use only one of contains or intersects or bbox.

  • time: A date range to filter scenes on. This range applies to the acquisition date/time of the scenes.

  • time_series: An array of date range filters as defined by time. If defined, the limit parameter applies to each date range individually and the time filter is ignored.

  • limit: An integer number of maximum results to return. Omit this to set no limit.

  • ids: An array of image identifiers. The S5P identifiers are described here. The file extension is omitted. By defining the ids filter you specify unambiguously which images to retrieve based solely on the given ID(s). The ids filter overrides all other filters, e.g., intersects, limit and/or time. This parameter cannot be used in combination with the testquery.

Example queries

Example query searching for images using a data range via time, limit and intersects with a geometry:

{

    "time": "2018-03-10T16:47:48+00:00/2019-03-10T16:47:49+00:00",
    "limit": 1,
    "intersects": {
      "type": "Polygon",
      "coordinates": [

          ],
          [

          ]
        ]
      ]
    },
    "imagery_layer": "L2__CH4___"
  }
}

Example query using specific image IDs:

{
    "sobloo-s5p:1":
        {
            "ids": ["S5P_OFFL_L1B_RA_BD6_20191026T120159_20191026T134328_10543_01_010000_20191026T153033"]
        }
}

Output format

The output GeoJSON contains the metadata as returned by the upstream provider API, Sobloo. The up42.data_path capability maps to the directory containing the netcdf for the scene. Example output GeoJSON:
