Introduction and Access to Global Air Quality Forecasting Data and Tools

by bblevins » Thu Sep 09, 2021 12:19 pm America/New_York

NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online webinar series: Introduction and Access to Global Air Quality Forecasting Data and Tools.

This 3-part training, delivered in collaboration with the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), will describe currently available global air quality forecasts, their different frameworks, and how they use satellite and ground observations to improve and evaluate their forecasts. Participants will learn how to access forecast information and images, and how to download output for their own visualization or analysis.

If you would like to join us or pass along to colleagues who will find it useful, please do so. Please see the training details and registration information below.

Introduction and Access to Global Air Quality Forecasting Data and Tools

This first of its kind ARSET training focuses on NASA and European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) global air quality (AQ) forecasting capabilities. Delivered in collaboration with the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), this training will discuss the basics of AQ forecasting and will teach users how to access and interpret global air quality forecasts. Anyone who is interested in learning about AQ forecasting will benefit from this training.

Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal:
• Target 3.9: By 2030, substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution and contamination

Course Dates: September 23, 28, & 30, 2021
