Data System Scope
OGC interface access to North American emissions inventories, regional and global emissions models, and activity data (e.g., satellite derived fire locations).
Spatial - Temporal Coverage
Forecasting and Reanalysis
Applies OGC standards for data access and analysis. Creates "mashup" applciations for comparing and reconciling emissions inventories, models, surface observations, and satellite imagery.
