AOS Applications Seminar: Air Quality Applications Enhancements through Suborbital Activities
 Thursday, 15-Sep-2022
 1:00-2:00 PM Eastern

Presentations: Mary Uhl | Doug Boyer

Seminar Speakers: Mary Uhl (WESTAR) and Doug Boyer (TCEQ)

The Atmosphere Observing System (AOS) will have a suborbital component that will add measurements from the air and from the surface. It will measure "blind zones" where the satellite instruments are obscured, measure temporal evolution (lifecycle) of processes, and make direct measurements of cloud, precipitation, and aerosol particles. Suborbital measurements will provide validation for and enhanced interpretation of novel AOS satellite measurements that will directly support and address application gaps. In this seminar, invited speakers discussed how suborbital activities have enhanced or could enhance operations/applications among air agencies.
