NASA Showcases Data Application To Aid Air Quality Assessment
    WHAT: Showcase of new NASA Data Fusion Product to study Air Quality

    WHERE: 97th Annual Air & Waste Management Association Conference

    WHEN: Wednesday, June 23, 2004
    2:30 p.m. EDT
    Indiana Conference Center, Indianapolis
NASA Applications Program Manager Lawrence Friedl discusses new data fusion product that improves air quality assessment, management and prediction. The product infuses satellite measurements from NASA into analyses by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, for public benefit.

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.
