Lab Members Support ARSET Training

10.25.2022
NASA's Applied Remote Sensing Training (ARSET) Program completed an intermediate, online training titled, "Accessing and Analyzing Air Quality Data from Geostationary Satellites." This three-part training, offered in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Institute Of Environmental Research (NIER, South Korea), provided an overview of geostationary capabilities for monitoring air quality around the world, introduced geostationary aerosol datasets from GOES-East, GOES-West, Himawari 8, and the Geostationary Environment Monitoring Spectrometer (GEMS), and presented data access and python tools to read and analyze the datasets. This training was delivered by Pawan Gupta (USRA/MSFC), Melanie Follette-Cook (612), Sarah Strode (614/MSU), and guest speakers Aaron Naeger (TEMPO/MSFC), Amy Huff and Sujung Go (613/UMBC). Selwyn Hudson-Odoi (612/UMBC), David Barbato (612/UMBC), Sarah Cutshall (612/SSAI), and Jonathan O’Brien (612/SSAI) supported the training. In attendance were 860 participants from 102 countries and 38 US states. Approximately 425 unique organizations were represented.

Overview

The Climate and Radiation Laboratory seeks a better understanding of Earth's climate on all time scales, from daily, seasonal, and interannual variability through changes on geologic time scales. Our research focuses on integrated studies of atmospheric measurements from satellites, aircraft and in-situ platforms, numerical modeling, and climate analysis.

We investigate atmospheric radiation, both as a driver for climate change and as a tool for the remote sensing of Earth's atmosphere and surface. The Laboratory research program strives to better understand how our planet reached its present state, and how it may respond to future drivers of change, both natural and anthropogenic.
