NASA satellite data can be used for a variety of applications, including 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. This training will be held in partnership with the Indonesian Agency for Meteorological, Climatological and Geophysics (BMKG) and the U.S. Embassy, Jakarta. NASA ARSET, BMKG and the U.S. Embassy does not provide any financial support (including travel, logistics, food, etc.) to participants for attending the training.
By the end of this training, attendees will be able to:
Each participant must come with a laptop computer with the capability to connect to the internet using WiFi.
ARSET asks that attendees download the necessary software:
It is suggested that you view Session 1 of Fundamentals of Remote Sensing to familiarize yourself.
NASA ARSET trainings are primarily intended for air quality professionals and decision makers from local, state, and federal agencies, NGOs, and the private sector.
All participants must register to participate in the training. While there is no registration fee associated with the training, ARSET does not provide financial support (including travel, logistics, food, etc.).
Registration is now closed.
