    This first of its kind ARSET training focuses on NASA and European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) global air quality (AQ) forecasting capabilities. Delivered in collaboration with Copernicus (https://www.copernicus.eu/en), this training will discuss the basics of AQ forecasting and will teach users how to access and interpret global air quality forecasts. Anyone who is interested in learning about AQ forecasting will benefit from this training.

    OBJECTIVE: This multi-week webinar series will describe currently available global air quality forecasts, their different frameworks, and how they use satellite and ground observations to improve and evaluate their forecasts. Participants will learn how to access forecast information and images, and how to download output for their own visualization or analysis.

    AUDIENCE: This training is primarily intended for local, regional, state, federal, and international organizations involved in air quality management and forecasting, and those with an interest in applying remote sensing and global models for air quality applications.

  • GoToWebinar - Introductory Webinar: Introduction to NASA Resources for Climate Change Applications (Session A)

    Since the pre-industrial period, human activities are estimated to have increased Earth’s global average temperature by about 1.1 degree Celsius (IPCC, 2021), a number that is currently increasing by 0.2 degrees Celsius per decade (GISTEMP Team, 2021). The increase in global average temperature is driven by increased carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere and other human activities (IPCC Sixth Assessment Report, 2021).

    Scientists use observations from the ground, air, and space, along with theoretical models and scenarios of future emissions, to monitor and study past, present, and future climate change. Climate data records provide evidence of climate change key indicators such as global land and ocean temperature increases; rising sea levels; ice loss at Earth’s polar regions and in mountain glaciers; frequency and severity changes in extreme weather such as hurricanes, heatwaves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and precipitation; and cloud and vegetation cover changes, to name but a few. This climate information is a fundamental basis for mitigation, adaptation, and risk management planning in all parts of the world and across many elements of society and ecosystems.

    This two-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of NASA resources for monitoring climate change and its impacts. The webinar will define the terminology and the role of Earth observations in climate change assessment, and then provide an overview of NASA climate models suitable for emissions policy, impacts, risk, and resilience applications.

    OBJECTIVE: After participating in the training, attendees will be able to:
    - Explain the difference between weather and climate
    - Recognize the main components relevant to climate change decision making
    - Identify how Earth observations are used in climate change assessment
    - Summarize different types of climate information across time scales
    - Discuss how models can be used for climate change adaptation planning
