Session Overview

On 6 May 2009, the 33rd ISRSE Symposium held as session on Air Quality & GEOSS. In addition to four talks, posted below, a significant amount of time was held for discussion amongst the presenters, and especially from the audience. This page attempts to capture some of that discussion.

Discussion:

Lawrence Friedl of NASA Co-chaired the session with Rudy Husar of Washington University. Lawrence moderated the discussion.

Topics discussed:

  • AIRNow is a good example of decision support. Gary Foley of EPA suggested that AIRNow push further, for example by creating applications for cell phones that provide users with real-time real-location AQ information.
  • Many initiatives and programs are underway in Europe. Are these folks communicating with one another? Enabling this communication is a central motivation for activating an Air Quality Community of Practice for GEOSS.
  • What should such a CoP do? Ideas:
    • Use social networking. Robin Smith, from JRC, Italy, suggested a Facebook Group.
    • Produce a newsletter.
