Air Quality & Health Stakeholder Engagement
NASA's Applied Sciences Program (ASP) sponsors a number of efforts to facilitate the use of NASA satellite data and computer models by the various stakeholder communities, such as air quality, health, disasters, and food security. One of these efforts is the Health & Air Quality Applied Sciences Team (HAQAST), which has enabled many projects. Here we list just a few projects that have been enabled, at least in part, by HAQAST members. Visit the HAQAST website to learn of many other projects.
- NAAQS State Implementation Plans (SIPS): Easy-to-follow technical guidance documents to support state and local air quality agencies that want to bring the power of NASA’s satellites to bear on the documentation of exceptional events.
- Haze/Visibility Planning: Using satellite data for regional haze/visibility planning.
- U.S. Air Quality Trends: Are air pollution regulations improving U.S. air quality and improving human health? Yes! Access a collection of free, publicly-available and downloadable resources (e.g., informational fact sheet, visualizations, summaries, etc.) to aid health and air quality managers to demonstrate the successes of environmental regulations on improving air quality.
- Global AQ Monitoring Network: How can various technologies (e.g., global air quality modeling, low-cost sensors, satellite data) be used in a comprehensive global monitoring network for air pollution?
