HAQAST Project: Broadening the Use of Satellite Data for Health and Air Quality Management

Tracey’s team seeks to deliver targeted training and data products to end-users throughout the air-quality and public health communities, specifically by working with NASA Applied Remote Sensing Training (ARSET), building on successful partnerships with EPA, and supporting newer users with a national reach, such as the American Lung Association, the Rocky Mountain Institute, and Ramboll to expand the utility of satellite data for public health, air quality management, and energy analysis.

Project goals/deliverables:

  • Support the utilization of satellite-derived PM2.5 by the American Lung Association.
  • Constrain NOx emissions with TROPOMI NO2 for U.S. EPA.
  • Assess building energy use from TROPOMI NO2 with the Rocky Mountain Institute.
