The main objective of this thesis is to design a new aerosol layer height retrieval in order to improve the operational NO2 retrieval, both in the troposphere, from space-borne instruments for highly polluted events and under cloud-free conditions. This thesis focuses on the exploitation of the OMI satellite measurements acquired in the visible wavelength range (405-490 nm). In addition, we develop numerical methods and tools (e.g. machine learning) in order to support the operational processing of big data amounts from the forthcoming new-generation satellite instruments for air quality and climate research.
