"Most of the NO2 pollution is at ground level, where ecosystems and people live and breathe."
Why does NASA measure NO2? NO2 is a criteria pollutant regulated by the U.S. EPA (and in many other countries) and can be harmful to humans. NO2 produces ozone, another pollutant, and produces acid rain, which is detrimental to ecosystems. Sources of NO2 are lightning, fires, soils, combustion of fossil fuels (e.g., cars, power plants, manufacturing). Most of the NO2 pollution is at ground level, where ecosystems and people live and breathe.
