This deliverable is presented as an interactive map. It includes a collection of published studies on satellite identification of hot-spot emissions as an online repository based on a literature review exercise and has an informational purpose to users with different backgrounds as a preparation for the next CO2M mission. In the context of the user engagement (WP8), we gathered this information to provide future CO2M users with current state-of-the-art information on research being already done in the field of the detection and quantification of hot-spots emissions by satellites. After consulting with different scientists (e.g. SRON, The Netherlands), we received a positive feedback and heard that it is seen as an useful tool and a good example of literature review which could be even essential for acquiring funding.
