Air Pollution in Ukraine from space

1. 12. 2020

Study based on the Copernicus Sentinel 5p satellite imagery and quality-controlled air pollution data from the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service. The current air quality situation in Ukraine is diverse and it reflects the distribution of the urban and industrial centres. Overall, the Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Kyiv, Luhansk, and Zaporizhia regions are those most seriously affected by air pollution. From a city perspective, there should be a focus on six key urban areas, including Dnipro, Donetsk, Kryvyi Rih, Kyiv, Mariupol, and Zaporizhia.
