Join 15 December NESEC Air Quality Campaign Webinar Series (Session 3): “How Do Ground Observations Enhance the Air Quality Story?”
Participating in the four-part Air Quality Campaign Webinar Series, “Investigating GLOBE Air Quality from the Ground, to Clouds to Satellites,” hosted by the NASA Earth Science Education Collaborative (NESEC)? With NASA scientist, Dr. Margaret Pippin, from Langley Research Center (Hampton, Virginia, USA), the series provides information and tools for exploring air quality.
There are two session remaining:
- 15 December, Session 3 (04:00 p.m. ET): “How Do Ground Observations Enhance the Air Quality Story?” Join this session to learn how GLOBE citizen scientists contribute to the overall picture of air quality, and how they use ground measurements from low-cost sensors to complement their GLOBE observations. A NASA scientist will demonstrate how to use the Purple Air visualization map and download PM 2.5 data. Learn how to access the EPA Fire and Smoke Map for more information.

- 12 January, Session 4 (04:00 p.m. ET): “How to Tell Your Air Quality Story.” During this session, a NASA scientist will demonstrate how to use cloud observations, aerosols images, and citizen scientist measurements to connect satellite and ground measurements to tell your air quality story. You will learn how various sources of data complement each other and allow you to craft a story using historical GLOBE data or your own observations. Find weather fronts, fires, dust storms and more. Your host will also provide a template for telling the story about what you discover. To register for this session, click here.
