Short summary
Regional NO2 distributions can be simulated by models or retrieved from satellite observations. We developed a custom OMI NO2 data product for the Pearl River delta region which reduces biases compared to the standard product. The product is used for the evaluation of a regional air quality model for which it is a useful addition to ground measurements. The unbiased NO2 data product can be very helpful for air pollution studies in urban areas.
