You are invited to join one or more of our discussions on topics related to HAQAST applied research. These are virtual meetings – akin to breakout groups at a meeting. We have a series of topics, lead by HAQAST investigators. These informal discussion groups are intended to build two-way dialogue, so we can connect with stakeholder partners in health and air quality. These may be one-off discussions, or they may be the start of something bigger. It depends how they go, and I hope you’ll consider participating.
See below for full list of topics and more information — please check back as new topics may be added, or links updated to maximize access. (We’re aware, for example, that some domains have difficulty with Google Docs — if you cannot access a page, please email you comments directly to the session coordinator or to the HAQAST Digital Media Coordinator Alex Pavelic <firstname.lastname@example.org>)
Most of these discussions are intended as a starting point for our next-stage collaborative research activities, also known as Tiger Teams. Whether you have ideas for specific projects – or just want to hear more about NASA data capabilities – I hope you will take time to join the discussion groups relevant to your interests.
