This training will cover the applications of Earth observations for air quality-related decision-making activities. Lectures & exercises will highlight applications related to air quality monitoring, forecasting, smoke, fire, PM2.5 monitoring, image interpretation, and data access for modeling efforts. Data sources will include:

  • GOES-East
  • GOES-West
  • Online tools for visualizing and acquiring aerosol & trace gas data
  • TEMPO proxy datasets

To conclude the training, participants will complete a case study that incorporates all data portals, tools, and relevant data. Participants will apply this to properly identify, track, and measure air quality events of their choosing. This will also allow them to assess the strengths and weaknesses of these data products.
