Description:
With the world’s eyes and media coverage turned to recent global changes in air pollution from the economic downturn, we have an upcoming two-part webinar series (May 26 and 28) that will focus on which air quality pollutants can be measured from space, how satellites make these measurements, the do’s and don’ts in interpreting satellite data, and how to download and create your own visualizations. Course Format: Two online, 1.5-hour parts
Targeted Audience:
Members of the public, journalists, meteorologists, and others new to remote sensing.
Expected Outcomes:
Learning Objectives: By the end of this training, attendees will be able to: • List the pollutants that can be observed by NASA satellites • Find and download imagery for NO2 and aerosols/particles • Describe the capabilities and limitations of NASA NO2 and aerosol measurements
