High Temporal Resolution Air Quality Observations from Space

Left to Right: RGB, RGB Air Mass, Dust, Cloud Optical Thickness. Top Half: Western Hemisphere; Bottom Half: Eastern Hemisphere (partial)
Dates: 
Tuesday, September 4, 2018 to Tuesday, September 25, 2018

For certain applications, some satellites take too long to revisit the same spot. Some satellites are capable of consistent monitoring of the same area. This webinar series will cover satellites with a high temporal resolution for air quality applications. Attendees will learn about new and upcoming geostationary satellites, what data is available, and how to access them. The training will cover satellites over the Americas, Asia, and Africa, and feature speakers from NOAA, Yonsei University, and the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing.

 

List of Relevant Tools & Data Portals

Learning Objectives: 

By the end of the training, attendees will be able to: 

  • understand the difference between polar orbiting and geostationary satellites
  • recognize current and upcoming geostationary satellites
  • access air quality datasets
Course Format: 
  • Four, one-hour sessions
Audience: 

Local, state and federal environmental monitoring agencies in the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Africa.
