Satellite Remote Sensing of Air Quality

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.
