Fastnet Aq Conference R Presentation Transcript

  • 1. The FASTNET Project Presented by: Sean Raffuse 1 Rudy Husar 2 Rich Poirot and Gary Kleiman 3 1 Sonoma Technology, Inc. 2 Center for Air Pollution Impact and Trend Analysis (CAPITA) 3 NESCAUM Presented at: U.S. EPA 2005 National Air Quality Conference San Francisco, CA February 13-16, 2005 STI-2646
  • 2. FASTNET
    • F ast A erosol S ensing T ools for N atural E vent T racking
    • Brings together realtime and historical data sets useful for aerosol analysis into several web based consoles
    • Developed by the Center for Air Pollution Impact and Trend Analysis (CAPITA) and STI
    • A Regional Planning Organization (RPO) project
    • Managed for MANE-VU by Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM)
    • Currently functional and freely accessible
  • 3. On Aerosol Events and Data
    • Aerosol episodes are often complex
      • Different components, shapes, sizes, mixing
      • Natural and anthropogenic sources
      • Transport and carryover
    • Aerosol data sets come from a variety of sources and difficult to use
      • Data sets are large, many different formats and cumbersome
      • Stored and maintained at various locations; dynamic
      • Represent different time/space scales
    • Aerosol data need to be integrated and presented in real time
      • Individual data sets can only provide narrow views of aerosol events
      • Data integration provides a broader characterization of events
      • Synthesizing datasets helps better understanding aerosol events
  • 4. Within DATAFED.NET, FASTNET is one of many “ Projects” which Share Many Common “ Datasets” which are Archived & Accessible & can be Viewed, Compared, Exported, Analyzed & Interpreted, using a variety of Web-Based “ Applications” FASTNET uses the DataFed.net infrastructure Supported by NSF, NASA, EPA and other Agencies
  • 5. DataFed Synthesizes Data for Analyses Image Files Ambient Monitors Emission Inventories Fire Locations Meteorology GIS Maps Satellite Imagery Data Data Retrieval Service Outputs Websites Maps Graphs XML CSV Analyst Consoles Custom Consoles Manager Console Connects to various data types And creates standard data views Which can be incorporated into websites Databases
  • 6. Real-time Real-time Real-time
  • 7. Data Catalog(s) Provide Access to Many: Fast (rapidly available), Current (near-real-time, recently archived & continuing) and Slow (historical data Like IMPROVE Aerosol & ATAD trajectories)
  • 8. Event Analysis – February 19, 2004
    • Areas of elevated PM 2.5 in the Great Lakes (MN, MI), Northeast, and West Texas
    • What are the features?
  • 9. This is one of several Analyst Consoles Visibility Meteorological parameters Satellite indices Fires Aerosol models Imagery
  • 10. Analyst Console Applications: Sulfate Episode: 8/27/04 Sulfate in the Northeast Sahara Dust in the Gulf Fires in the Southeast Time Series Console: Southeast
  • 11. Feb 19 2004: Texas Dust & Midwest Nitrate
    • Isolated high PM25 occurs over the Midwest, Northeast and Texas
    • Aerosol patches are evident in AIRNOW PM25, ASOS & Fbext maps
    • The high surface wind speed over Texas, hints on possible dust storm activity
    • The NAAPS model shows high sulfate over the Great Lakes, but no biomass smoke
    • Possible causes: nitrate in the Upper Midwest, sulfate around the Great Lakes, dust over Texas
  • 12. Event Tracker provides pre-selected views and links to other information Analyst summaries
  • 13. High winds in northeast Texas and Oklahoma Navy Aerosol Analysis and Prediction System (NAAPS) Model shows dust in this area
  • 14. Air Quality Manager’s Console Browse a subset of the FASTNET data in time and space with a simple GIS interface Hourly PM 2.5 Visibility Fire Locations GIS Data Layers
  • 15. Satellite images News stories
  • 16. FASTNET Status This is what I need to talk about
    • FASTNET is still under development, but available at www.datafed.net
    • Air Quality Manager’s Console at fastnet.sonomatechdata.com
    • If you are interested in participating, contact Rich Poirot gkleiman@nescaum.org)
    • For technical information on DataFed and FASTNET contact Rudy Husar (rhusar@me.wustl.edu)
    • For information on the Air Quality Manager’s Console contact Sean Raffuse (sraffuse@sonomatech.com )
  • 17. FASTNET References and Links

    • Other FASTNET Reports and Presentations
    • PM Event Detection from Time Series
    • Automated Detection of Regional Haze Events
    • Mystery Winter Haze over the Midwest
    • February 19, 2004 Texas-Mexico Dust Event
    • February 19 2004 PM Event over the Northeast and Quebec
    • June 4 2004 Tucson Dust
    • July 4 2004 Aerosol Pulse
    • April 28, 2004 Nevada Dust
  • 18. A Peek Under the Hood
    • FASTNET uses the DataFed.net infrastructure
  • 19. Relevance
    • Aerosol episodes are often complex
      • Different components, shapes, sizes, mixing
      • Natural and anthropogenic sources
      • Transport and carryover
    • Individual data sets can provide clues about the cause and nature of aerosol events
    • Synthesizing the data helps us better understand aerosol events
  • 20. Satellite detects fires in the Southeast But PM 2.5 values are small
  • 21. The NAAPS model suggests the high PM 2.5 in the Northeast is due to sulfate
  • 22. Users can customize views by layering the many available data sets These custom views can be incorporated into their own websites
