U s ambient air monitoring

U.S. Ambient Air Monitoring

  • National Ambient Air Quality Standards

    • Carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur oxides, particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5), and ozone

  • Typical Real-time Monitors

    • Hourly Ozone (ppb)

    • Hourly PM2.5 (g / m3)

  • Converted to health-based air quality index (AQI)

  • Available on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s AIRNow website (http://www.airnow.gov)

Satellite data available for air quality

Satellite Data Available for Air Quality

  • Most useful for particulate matter (PM)

  • Type of information relevant to PM:

    • True Color (Red, Green, Blue - RGB) - looks like a photograph but is data, shows haze, dust, & smoke

    • Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) - Non-dimensional measure of total column (satellite-ground) extinction

  • Limited but improving information on ground-level ozone, SO2, CO, vertical distribution of PM

  • All data is “free”, available globally

  • Weekly Composites of MODIS Aerosol Terra Optical Depth for 2007

  • Weekly Composites from one satellite provides increases spatial coverage

  • Further work will use data fusion approaches to combine both Terra and Aqua to fill in the gaps.
