'''GIOVANNI:''' The GES-DISC (Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center) Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure (GIOVANNI) is a Web-based application that provides standards-based web access (WMS, WCS, OpENDAP) to NASA Earth science remote sensing data including MODIS, MISR, TOMS, MLS, CALIOP and GOCART. GIOVANNI will enable air quality scientists to identify regional air pollution sources and sinks. It will also help in tracking the intercontinental transport of atmospheric trace gases and aerosols from industrial pollution plumes, smoke or dust. GIOVANNI is also developing tools to provide vertically-resolved visualization of aerosol pollution by combining MODIS AOD and CALIOP extinction data. The vertical distribution of aerosols will enable air quality scientists to understand the vertical transport of aerosols.

'''AIRPACT:''' The AIRPACT-3 daily air-quality forecasting system offers an excellent resource EE DSS for Exceptional Events, such as smoke from wildfires or dust storms. To support the development of the proposed EE DSS, Vaughan will make AIRPACT-3 results available for evaluation of air-quality events of interest as potential exceptional events. Also, Vaughan will participate in analysis of candidate events by operating the AIRPACT-3 modeling system with alternative emissions scenarios or boundary conditions and participate in evaluation of the contribution of specific sources of interest.  For example, in the case of candidate EE involving wildfires in the northwest, AIRPACT-3 can provide air-quality simulation results for scenarios both including and excluding regional forest fires, for which emissions are already automatically included in AIRPACT-3 simulations.

'''BAMS:'''Baron Advanced Meteorological Systems' (BAMS) is developing a mission-critical commercial, national-scale air quality forecast decision support system (AQF-DSS). Operational forecasts are produced using MM5/SMOKE/MAQSIP-RT and CMAQ models which includes simultaneous assimilation of real-time satellite and surface aerosol observations. The new deep blue MODIS retrievals will improve initial and boundary conditions over CONUS, while the land-surface modeling system will better characterize the surface relative humidity critical to hygroscopic aerosol effects. The model simulations will inform and improve the ability

to distinguish exceptional events from those that should be rightly classified as events that violate the standard. BAMS will make model results available for the evaluation of possible exceptional events, and will develop a boundary-condition interface to the NAAPS to better capture the effect of long-range transport from outside the regional-to-local domain where the event occured.

'''DataFed:''' DataFed is a distributed web-services-based computing environment for accessing, processing and rendering environmental data in support of air quality management and science. The flexible, adaptive environment facilitates the creation of user-driven data processing value chains. DataFed non-intrusively wraps datasets for access by standards-based web services. Its federated data pool consists of over 100 datasets and the tools have been applied in several air pollution projects. DataFed contributes air quality data (as services) to the shared data pool through the GEOSS Common Infrastructure. It also hosts a Decision Support System (DSS) for Exceptional Event analysis.
