ARSET – NASA Atmospheric Composition Ground Networks Supporting Air Quality and Climate Applications

In this five-part, online, intermediate-level training, multiple NASA networks will participate and provide training on their atmospheric composition ground networks. These networks provide data relevant to aerosol and trace gas column concentrations and vertical structure, supporting applications in air quality and climate. Surface networks from NASA and other international contributions form the backbone of long-term atmospheric composition observations globally and provide continuity and validation across typically shorter satellite mission lifetimes. This online training will provide a basic understanding of aerosol and trace gas measurements using both active and passive techniques for ground based remote sensing. It will also teach users how to select, access, and incorporate relevant data from these ground networks into their work. Finally, it will demonstrate an application comparing ground-based and satellite remote sensing products. The training will include lectures, hands-on exercises, and a homework assignment.
