Kevin Cromar Addresses NASA on Air Pollution
Director of Air Quality, Kevin Cromar, gave a talk to the Aerosol and Cloud, Convection, and Precipitation (ACCP) Applications Impact Team (AIT) at NASA on how decisions regarding project architecture can best achieve the application goals of the upcoming mission. In particular, he adressed how the health community would benefit most from level-4 data products for outdoor air pollution that provide meaningful information on aerosol typology. He also discussed tradeoffs in spatial and temporal resolutions to consider in providing information of greatest value to researchers and air-quality managers. Planning the upcoming NASA ACCP mission is ongoing and Cromar will continue to work with the AIT to provide actionable insights from a health and policy perspective.
