Application of Satellite Observations for Air Quality and Health Exposure

Cramer Hall, 320 Sparkman Drive, Huntsville, AL 35805
Date Range: 
Wednesday, October 9, 2019 to Friday, October 11, 2019

This training will cover the applications of Earth observations for 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. 

List of Relevant Tools & Data Portals

This training will take part before and after the TEMPO Health Applications Conference.

Course Format: 
  • October 9 will be an Introductory-Level training, appropriate for participants with little to no remote sensing experience
  • October 11 will be an Advanced-Level training, which will provide detailed applications with step-by-step instructions
  • Participants that attend the Introductory-Level training will be prepared for the Advanced-Level training
  • Participants may sign up for both or either day of training

This training is appropriate for air quality and health professionals, as well as decision makers from local, state, and federal agencies, NGOs, and the private sector. Limited spots will be reserved for research and academia.
