  1. GEOSS ADC Air Quality & Health Scenario John E. White U.S. Environmental Protection Agency white.johne@epa.gov

  2. Air Quality Scenario Development Process • Scenario was developed iteratively by a collaborating multi-organization group • Used the ESIP wiki and telecons to discuss and develop the submitted scenario • This Community of Practice is to co-evolve with the AIP Pilot and other activities Community of Practice Wiki for AQ Scenario

  3. Air Quality & Health Scenario • Air pollution is a serious global public health problem • Air pollution is influenced by processes on local, regional, intercontinental, and global scales • To better understand, forecast, and manage air pollution, there is a need to bring together information from • different observational platforms (surface monitoring networks, satellites, sondes, ground-based remote sensors, aircraft, ...) • meteorological and chemical transport models • emissions and emissions-generating activities • population demographics, exposure-related behavior, and health impacts do not respect political boundaries

  4. Air Quality & Health Scenario: Actors • Earth Observations Providers • National, State/Provincial, Local Environmental Management Agencies; National Meteorological Agencies; National Space Agencies; National Land Management Agencies; Industry; Consultants; Academic and Other Research Institutes; and international cooperative fora (e.g. WMO, CEOS, EEA, ...) • Other Related Information Providers • National, State/Provincial, Local Commerce/Transportation/Energy/Land Use/Health Authorities; Industry; Consultants; Academic and Other Research Institutes • Air Quality Modelers, Forecasters, and Analysts • National, State/Provincial, Local Environmental Management Agencies; National Meteorological Agencies; National Space Agencies; Industry; Consultants; Academic and Other Research Institutes; and international scientific cooperative fora or projects (e.g., IGAC, GEMS, ECMWF, EMEP, ...) • Information Management Specialists • National, State/Provincial, Local Environmental Management Agencies; National Meteorological Agencies; National Space Agencies; National Land Management Agencies; Industry; Consultants; Academic and Other Research Institutes • Air Quality Management Decision-Makers • National, State/Provincial, Local Environmental Management Agencies and Multi-lateral Cooperative Fora (such as LRTAP Convention, EANET, Male Declaration, CAI-Asia, Arctic Council, ...); Industry • Other Consumers of Air Quality Information • the general public; National, State/Provincial, and Local Health and Emergency Response Authorities; Academic and Independent Research Institutes (including health and environmental impacts research); Mass Media (including television, newspapers, radio, internet, ...)

  5. Air Quality & Health: Starting Information • Meteorological data • Observations from ground-based networks, satellites, sondes • Forecasts from numerical models at the global and regional scales • Geographical data • Land use • Demographics • Emissions-related activity • Atmospheric Composition (Air Quality) Observations • Surface Monitoring Networks • Satellite Observations • Sondes • Ground-based remote sensors • Aircraft Measurements • Numerical Air Quality Chemical Transport Models • (at regional to global scales)

  6. Air Quality & Health Scenario: Focus Areas • Real-Time Large-Scale Event Analysis • FASTNET, IDEA, SmogBlog • Assessment of International and Intercontinental Transport of Air Pollution • HTAP Data Network, AMET, RSIG, HemiTap • Assimilation of Observations for Air Quality Forecasting • GEMS, RAQMS • Provision of Relevant Information to the Health Community & the Public • AIRNow, PHASE
