NASA ACCP Air Quality Workshop

March 16-18, 2021
 Online
In a series of three half-day virtual meetings, this workshop focused on current applications and future opportunities of Aerosol and Clouds, Convection, and Precipitation (ACCP) observations to support air quality and disaster applications. The workshop brought together representatives from federal and state operational agencies, private companies and boundary organizations to discuss how NASA ACCP aerosol products could be better leveraged to inform decision-making activities. This workshop also provided an opportunity for end users to engage with the ACCP Designated Observable Applications Study Team to address current satellite uses and challenges as well as future satellite needs.

Confronting Future Models with Future Satellite Observations of Clouds and Aerosols
The NASA Aerosol, Clouds, Convection and Precipitation Study (ACCP) is planning the next generation of earth observations for clouds and aerosols. ACCP Observations will be available towards the end of the decade. This workshop brought together experts in simulations and satellite observations of clouds, aerosols and chemistry to discuss (1) past, present and future of cloud and aerosol observations, (2) the future of cloud and aerosol models, and (3) state of the art methods for model-data fusion. We welcomed all interested in the future of cloud and aerosol science, especially modeling clouds and aerosols.

AIT Transportation Logistics Workshop

November 2-5, 2020
 Online
 NASA
In a series of half-day virtual meetings (Nov 2 and Nov 4-5), this workshop focused on current applications and future opportunities of NASA precipitation and cloud data products to support transport and logistical activities for aviation, maritime, roads and highway transportation systems. The workshop brought together representatives from federal and state operational agencies, private companies and boundary organizations to discuss how NASA precipitation and cloud products could be better leveraged to inform decision making for transport and logistical operations. The workshop also provided an opportunity for end users to engage with the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission and the Aerosol, Clouds, Convection and Precipitation (ACCP) Designated Observable Study Team to address current satellite use and challenges as well as future satellite needs.

Agenda
  • November 2, Monday: Overview of GPM and ACCP
  • November 4, Wednesday: Transportation Panel day
  • November 5, Thursday: Logistics and Supply Chain Management Panel Day

Weather and Air Quality Forecasting Applications Workshop

July 22-23rd, 2019
 Earth System Sciences Interdisciplinary Center, University of Maryland
 NASA GPM
This two-day workshop focused on current applications and future opportunities for NASA precipitation, cloud, and aerosol satellite data and products to support numerical weather prediction (NWP) and air quality forecasting activities. Hosted by the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission applications team, this invitation-only workshop brought together representatives from operational agencies, companies and organizations with NWP modeling activities and air quality forecasting programs to discuss how GPM products could be better leveraged for NWP and forecasting efforts. The workshop also included discussion of the Aerosol, Clouds, Convection and Precipitation (A-CCP) mission concept, and its potential for advancing NWP and Air Quality applications. A-CCP is currently undergoing a mission concept and architecture study as one of the Designated Observables identified in the National Academy of Sciences 2018 Earth Science and Applications from Space.

The main objectives of the workshop are:
  • Technical presentations and discussions on how GPM data products and other data in NASA¬ís current mission suite are being assimilated within NWP modeling and opportunities for future applications.
  • Discussion of issues (challenges and barriers) related to the assimilation of satellite observations into NWP models (specifically for GPM) and opportunities for Air Quality forecasting.
  • Discuss how potential future measurements from the A-CCP concept study may be utilized by the NWP and Air Quality Forecast community, outlining the opportunities, needs, and challenges in directly using these satellite data products within this space.
  • Increase awareness of the needs of the NWP and Air Quality Forecast community for future research developments and collaboration.
