060130 Lrtp Washington Dc June2005 Meeting Scheffe

  1. 1. Recommendations to Task Force <ul><li>Major </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Adopt model evaluation/fusion as a design principle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Challenge organizations to elevate transport as a primary objective (currently, secondary to climate, start. Ozone) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Identify key list of routine measurements and locations to support IT assessments </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Gases (CO, NOy, NO2, SO2, HCHO, O3, Hg (species), CH4,VOCi) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>aerosol components (EC, OC, S, N), mass/scattering </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Support linkage of ground based and satellite observation platforms through development of a sustainable vertical profiling system (aircraft and ground based lidar) </li></ul><ul><li>Address integration of disparate data bases </li></ul><ul><ul><li>QA/QC: provide requirements for data standards/metadata descriptions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data base unification </li></ul></ul>
  2. 2. United States Ambient Air Monitoring <ul><li>>$100M annually (routine programs) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Does not include specific inflow/outflow stations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Value/resource allocation? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anchored in 1970-80’s design model: inertial barrier </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple agencies, high concentration emphasis </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Intercontinental Transport </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Covered through special studies (soft $) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Peripheral benefit of climate/stratospheric ozone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NOAA/NASA Satellite programs </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NOAA CMDL (aircraft, ships, buoys, sondes) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>National Monitoring strategy (NCore) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple pollutant co-location emphasis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Drive air program policy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Emphasis shift from compliance toward science </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Addition of trace (low level ) gas measurements (CO, NOy, SO2, NH3) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Larger integration with satellite and vertical profiling systems </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. NCore Measurements Level 2: ~ 75 Multi-pollutant (MP) Sites,“Core Species” Plus Leveraging From PAMS, Speciation Program, Air Toxics Level 1 . 3-10 Master Sites Comprehensive Measurements, Advance Methods Serving Science and Technology Transfer Needs Level 3 : Minimum Single Pollutant Sites (e.g.> 500 sites each for O3 and PM2.5 and related spatial Mapping Support L1 Minimum “Core” Level 2 Measurements Continuous NO,NOy,SO2,CO, PM2.5, PM10/PMc,O 3, Meteorology (T,RH,WS,WD) ; Integrated PM2.5 FRM, HNO3, NH3, L2 Level 3
  4. 4. Observational Systems: Focus? <ul><li>Design around major assessment tools </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Air quality modeling platforms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>GEOS-chem, MOZART, CMAQ,….more </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Satellite systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Existing routine surface and aircraft programs </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Emphasize </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Model evaluation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Linkage of remote and land based systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Integration of data information systems </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Considerations [LRTAP observations guidance] <ul><li>Emphasis on limited set of key parameters </li></ul><ul><ul><li>[model evaluation, source apportionment, emissions perspective] </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gases (CO, NOy, NO2?, SO2, HCHO?, O3, Hg?, CH4,VOCi?) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>aerosol components (C (EC, OC), S, N), mass/scattering </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Meteorological? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Key locations, inflow and outflow perspective </li></ul><ul><li>Standardization/QA </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reference material, or method (aerosols) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>E.g.,GAW Aerosol Speciation Programme, GASP </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Data base, IT standards? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hemispherical data unification center? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Practical LRTAP task? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Organizational frameworks </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Build on IGACO-EMEP efforts </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use guidance to influence participating nations </li></ul>
