The ESIP AQ Work Group is currently meeting every other week. These calls alternate with the GEO Architecture Implementation Pilot AQ Working Group's telecons; you can find their telecons here.

August 7, 2009 Telecon

1:30pm EDT
Phone: 866-489-0573;
Meeting Code: *2279431*

Topics (feel free to add an item to the agenda):

  • Proposed next step: Writing up a AQ Community Near Term Opportunity document, as discussed in Santa Barbara. A few years back EPA (Scheffe) and NOAA (Steve Fine?) produced an NTO for USGEO. We could update this document or write something new. Such a document, for ourselves, would be useful for explaining to others the purpose of this community, and so that we can see if we are making progress.
    • Could we write a draft of an NTO early this fall so we could present it in November to work on with a fuller version of an AQ Community of Practice?

(Feel free to add new stuff here. Remaining items are recycled from last call because they still seem germane, but I don't want to fill up the agenda if there is other work to discuss)

  • Follow-up from ESIP Summer meeting AQ sessions.
    • Add your notes or comments from the meeting
    • First draft Candidate Focus Areas that we identified during the workshop are posted. We need to get these in better shape.
    • Participation in NASA Air Quality Team Meeting (October?)
    • Tackling pieces of the NOx Use Case?
    • Defining implementation conventions for interoperability standards for air quality
    • Ways for us to help connect EPA and NASA efforts (in other words, can we define next steps that simultaneously address EPA and NASA interests?)
  • Need to profile AQ related projects, programs and efforts (laying out the AQ community landscape)
    • Following the initial effort for the EPA Data Summit
    • Will help us define next steps (aka 'low hanging fruit') in advancing the AQ community infrastructure
