  • The vision is to have these data available through an interoperability framework that allows them to be used via various subsets and combinations to support specific research and decision applications There are numerous Earth Observations that are available and in principle useful for air quality applications such as informing the public and enforcing AQ standards. However, connecting a user to the right observations or models is accompanied by an array of hurdles. The GEOSS Common Infrastructure allows the reuse of observations and models for multiple purposes Even in the narrow application of Wildfire smoke, observations and models can be reused.

Transcript

  • 1. 2011 Progress Report to UIC:GEOSS Air Quality Community of Practice (AQ CoP) Rudolf Husar (Point of Contact, rhusar@wustl.edu) Washington University in St. Louis 18th GEOSS User Interface Committee Meeting Sydney, April 8, 2011
  • 2. Air Quality & Health Applications
  • 3. Air Quality & Health Applications ‘Integrating Initiatives’ Not necessarily ‘under GEO’ HTAP, MACC, ACP, CyAir… Both Members and Beneficiaries of AQ CoP
  • 4. AQ Data Server Software Problem: AQ data services are few and not interoperable• Supported by specific projects, HTAP, MACC, EE• Co-developed at WashU, FZ Juelich, Open Source• Implemented at servers: – FZ Juelich, Germany (Global AQ model forecasts) Next Problem: – NILU, Norway (EMEP Monitoring Obs) – NGC Corp., US (AQ Emissions data) Interoperable servers are – VIEWS/CIRA, US (Aerosol Chemistry, Satellite) emerging but there are few – DataFed, US (Tens of AQ datasets) clients Common Data Access Standard, Conventions and Metadata Interoperability tested through client software
  • 5. User-Required Obs. Models Developed Five-Step Methodology for User Req. Registry1: State the SB Sub-Area: e.g. Manage Air Quality2: Define Major Workflow Steps of the SBA User-Required3: Name the Value-Adding Activities4: Identify Participants for Each Activity (‘Users’) Observations5: Determine the Participant’s EO Needs & Models Project supported by EPA AQ CoP guided and helped populating AQ URR! Similar Concept US-09-01a Nine-Step Method for Priority Eos 1: Identify Analyst and Advisory Group for the SBA Output 2: Determine scope of topics within the SBA 3: Identify docs on obs. priorities for the SBA 4: Develop analytic methods and priority criteria 5: Analyze docs for priority EO needs 6: Combine the info. and develop a prelim. report 7: Gather feedback on the preliminary report 8: Perform any additional analysis 9: Complete the report on Earth obs. for the SBA
  • 6. Matching Offerings and Needs AQ Community Catalog – Extracted from GCI Data in GCIAQ Requirements – Extracted from GEO URR Data in URR
  • 7. Activities – Continued in 2011: Focus: Expanding, Firming AQ Data NetworkProjects:HTAP, MACC, EE, …Network - continueAtmospheric Composition Portal (ACP)AIP 4:Coordinated Participation in the GEOSS AIP-IVPopulate GCI with US-09-01a CORE dataCommunity InteractionTelecons, GEO AQ CoP website needs work!AQ CoP Data Networking workshop in Croatia, Aug 2011
