The 2018 Environmental Performance Index ranked India's air quality as 178th out of 180 countries. NASA satellite data can be used for air quality forecasting, smoke and fire detection, PM2.5 monitoring, and modeling. This training will cover the access and use of NASA resources for decision-making activities related to air quality. A presentation on relevant data products, as well as the online tools used to acquire and visualize aerosol and trace gas data will be followed by an air quality case study. Participants will have the opportunity to use available data portals and visualization tools to identify, track, and measure air quality events of their choosing.
By the end of this training, attendees will be able to:
Air quality professionals and decision makers from local, state, and federal agencies, NGOs, and the private sector. There will be limited spots reserved for attendees from research and academia. Training participants will be selected through an application process and priority may be given to applied end-users.
Q: Does registering confirm my selection for training?
A: Registration does not confirm your selection. All applications will be reviewed and only selected participants will be notified after the close of registration.
Q: Is there a registration fee to attend this training?
A: Yes. More details are available at the symposium website. The registration fee is only paid after your selection for the training
Q: Do I have to register for the ISPRS symposium to attend the training?
A: No, registration to the ISPRS symposium is not mandatory, but highly encouraged.
