The EVERGREEN project, funded by the European Commission’s 5th Framework Environmental Programme for better exploitation of Earth Observation data, has demonstrated the benefits of new methods for the exploitation of satellite data in climate and air pollution research and application. In particular, the SCIAMACHY instrument on board the European Earth Observation satellite ENVISAT has produced the first retrievals of greenhouse gas emissions from space, generates ozone measurements that improve the weather forecast and delivers an operational service for air pollution monitoring and predictions.
