AQAST FY14 - Tiger Team Project Overview`Web-Enabled Tools for Air Quality Management Decision Support
NASA Air Quality Applied Sciences Team (AQAST) 6th Biannual Meeting Rice University January 15-17, 2014
Web-Enabled Tools for Air Quality Management Decision SupportProject Team:Lead PIs: Jim Szykman (USEPA ORD) and Scott Spak (U. Iowa)AQAST Members: Greg Carmichael(u. Iowa) , Daven Henze (CU Boulder), Dick McNider (UAH), Brad Pierce (NOAA/NESDIS)TT Specific Members: Todd Plessel and Matt Freeman (USEPA/NCC/L-M), Hyun-Deok Choi, NIA NASA-LaRCAQ management contacts: Terry Keating, Susan Anenberg (USEPA OAR), Rohit Mathur (USEPA ORD), Chris Misenis, Sharon Phillips (USEPA OAQPS), David Lighthall (SJVAPCD), Matthew Johnson (IA DNR)Tiger Team Project Objective: Extend development of an interoperable web-based infrastructure to highlight added value of NASA satellite data for model evaluation, constraints on emission fields, and present data in a user-ready and policy relevant manner.
Project leverages existing and new AQAST connections and efforts involving:model evaluation and adjoint modeling under Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution (TF-HTAP) and UNEP Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CACC),UAH Physical model evaluation activities of GOES and MODIS cloud and surface properties for numerical model evaluation, and EPA funded development of Remote Sensing Information Gateway (RSIG) Application and Cyberinfrastructure Best Practices under CyAir.
Outcome: Part of a user-agency supported common infrastructure for delivery satellite and model data sets and tools from AQAST.

Develop web service to access and visualize results in policy relevant manner via RSIG application.Bowman and Henze, 2012RSIG
Web-Enabled Tools for Air Quality Management Decision SupportLeverage existing AQAST efforts supporting satellite-measurement model evaluation under TF-HTAP.
Begin to incorporate satelliteto-model evaluation methods into AQAST web-based tools and RSIG application for continued use user applications.
Where feasible, include application of satellite average kernels.
Outputs to include basic satellite-to-model comparative statistics.Add figure with camx vs airs

Add functionally for user to use local model grid definition files to re-rid satellite data to model domain.
Not doing heavy lifting, leveraging other activities (largely outside AQAST) making web interface for users*
