  • TITLE: Spatiotemporal Assessment of SO2, SO4 and AOD over MENA Domain from 2006-2016 Using Multiple Satellite and Reanalysis MERRA-2 Data

    ABSTRACT: The sulfur pollutants are the source of a sizeable portion of the air pollution. In this work, the recent spatiotemporal distribution and trend of the mass concentration of two of the critical sulfur pollutants, SO2 and SO4, in addition to the aerosol optical properties (AOD) were analyzed over the region of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) from satellite and Modern Era-Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications version 2 (MERRA-2) reanalysis data. The SO2 and SO4 data used in these analyses are obtained from (MERRA-2) with a resolution of 0.5° × 0.625° throughout a period of 10 years (2005-2015). On the other hand, the temporal trend and spatial distribution of AOD were identified from four different satellite data. 1) moderate-resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) Level 3 AOD data at 550 nm wavelengths from Collection 6 algorithm (combined dark target and deep blue algorithms) are used for 10 years temporal analysis (2006-2015). 2) Multi-angle imaging spectroradiometer (MISR) with 0.5 deg spatial resolution for the same 10 years (2006-2015). 3) Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWIFS) with 0.5 deg for the period (2005-2010). 4) Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) AOD at 500 nm wavelength with resolution 1 degree. This study presents more resent 10 years of Spatiotemporal of SO2, SO4 and AOD over MENA domain.
