Send in the Clouds: Examining Air Quality in the Gulf of Mexico
The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) of the Gulf of Mexico houses more than 3,000 offshore oil and gas production facilities. These facilities emit criteria pollutants that are known to have both human health and environmental impacts.
Enhancing Ocean Color Observation from Space: A Look Forward to NASA’s PACE and GEO-CAPE Missions
Future NASA satellites will extend the reach of global ocean color observation and research.
Saharan Dust and Wildfire Smoke: An Evaluation of Enhancing AirNow with NASA Satellite Data
We present two case studies as a way to evaluate the performance of the AirNow Satellite Data Processor (ASDP): a Saharan dust transport event and a wildfire smoke event.
An Application for Improving Air Quality (a Houston Case Study)
In this work, we focus on the surface layer scheme, which provides input to the land and surface sub-models to calculate surface heat, momentum and moisture fluxes that drive the planetary boundary layer schemes that determine near surface wind speeds.
