Sentinel-5P (NetCDF)

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


The Sentinel-5P mission aims to perform atmospheric measurements with high spatio-temporal resolution. The Sentinel-5P images are used for air quality studies, climate monitoring or forecasting. These images are acquired by the satellite sensor Sentinel-5P anywhere on the globe, starting with 2017.
