NASA Health & Air Quality Program:
The Health & Air Quality (AQ) Program promotes innovation in public and private sector organizations to apply NASA satellite data, model products, and scientific findings in air quality management and policy activities that benefit human health and safety. The program particularly supports activities associated with the implementation of air quality standards, policy and regulations for environmental, economic and human welfare.
The Health & Air Quality Program focuses on themes of Air Quality Planning, Forecasting and Compliance and the crosscutting themes of Climate and Emissions Inventories while also focusing on areas of infectious disease, emergency preparedness and response, and environmental impacts. The goal of the NASA Health & Air Quality is to help determine how air quality and other key environmental factors correlate with human health for the overall goal of improving our nation's health and safety.
Air Quality & Public Health Applications Projects:
The Program supports in-depth, end-to-end projects in the use of satellite data for air quality and public health decision-making as well as enabling applications knowledge to support air quality and public health managers in environmental health and preparedness.
The program support national and international activities to improve skills, share data and applications, and broaden the range of users who apply satellite data and Earth science in AQ decisions.
||Air Quality Applied Sciences Team:
The Air Quality Applied Sciences Team (AQAST) was created by the Applied Sciences Program to serve the needs of US air quality management through the use of Earth Science data and models. AQAST members have expertise in the wide array of Earth Science tools and data sets available from NASA and others, as well as the resources to carry out quick-turnaround projects that respond to the urgent and evolving needs of air quality management.
