These tropospheric NO2 columns are derived from satellite observations based on slant column NO2 retrievals with the DOAS technique, and the KNMI combined modelling/retrieval/assimilation approach. The slant columns from GOME, SCIAMACHY and GOME-2 observations are derived by BIRA-IASB, the slant columns from OMI by KNMI/NASA
