WHERE: 97th Annual Air & Waste Management Association Conference
WHEN: Wednesday, June 23, 2004
2:30 p.m. EDT
Indiana Conference Center, Indianapolis
Researchers have developed sophisticated models of the chemistry and dynamics of Earth's atmosphere. They are working with the EPA to examine how NASA models might be used to help fulfill air quality management responsibilities. The EPA operates systems used to make air quality forecasts. Friedl will also discuss how NASA's Aura Earth science mission will help EPA efforts.
