High Temporal Resolution Air Quality Observations from Space: NASA ARSET Training Announcement

High Temporal Resolution Air Quality Observations from Space: NASA ARSET Training Announcement

NASA Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) Air Quality related training webinar on:

High Temporal Resolution Air Quality Observations from Space
 

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. 

 
Course Date and Time: Tuesdays, September 4th to September 25th from 12:00-13:00 EDT (UTC-4).
  • 09/04:  An introduction to geostationary satellite remote sensing of air quality.
  • 09/11:  Aerosol observations from GOES-R and GOES-S satellites over the Americas.
  • 09/18:  Aerosol observations from the HIMAWARI, GOCI, and GEMS satellites over Asia.
  • 09/25:  Aerosol observations from the INSAT series of satellites over Asia and Africa.
 
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
 
Intended Audience: Local, state and federal environmental monitoring agencies in the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Africa.
 
Registration: This webinar is free and open but you must register here. For more information about the ARSET program and the webinar please visit our website: NASA ARSET
