From media appearances to cutting-edge research, catch the newest developments in HAQAST’s work.
'Ozone pollution near Earth’s surface is one of the main ingredients of summertime smog and a primary cause of poor air quality. Yet it is not directly measurable from space because of the abundance of ozone higher in the atmosphere, which obscures measurements of surface ozone. Now NASA-funded researchers have devised a way to use satellites to measure the precursor gases that contribute to ozone formation.'
'New research predicts that air pollution worsened by climate change will cost tens of thousands of lives if changes are not made.'
'Giant dust storms are sweeping the southwestern United States more frequently. Why? Rising sea temperatures, according to a study published in the journal of Geophysical Research Letters.'
'NASA researchers are conducting science flights along the Wisconsin-Illinois Lake Michigan shoreline to help better understand the formation and transport of ozone, a potent air pollutant in the region.'
'Diesels pollute more than lab tests detect. Excess emissions kill 38,000 annually.'

'Targeting Cookstove Pollution Using Supercomputers and NASA Satellites'
'11 Surprising Predictions for 2017 from some of The Biggest Names in Science'
'HAQAST has expanded its focus beyond just air quality policy and regulation information utilizing Earth observationing data to the environmental health realm'
“I am excited by this opportunity, not only to conduct studies that will have an influence on environmental and public health policies, but also to better understand how to improve engagement with decision makers in future projects.”
