The ESIP Air Quality Cluster has a number of projects on this wiki. Some are active projects being developed in this space, some are archived here for documentation.

Your participation is welcome!

The overarching objective of the AQ Cluster is to build better connections, both technical and interpersonal, between and among air quality data providers and data users. {suggest pyramid picture here} The AQ Cluster aims to:

  • bring people and ideas together on how to network earth science data/service providers with air quality researchers and managers
  • facilitate technologies and IT architecture for improving the flow of earth science data to air quality management and the broad range of information users
  • create a user-driven space for describing, documenting, and providing feedback about the many datasets and tools for adding values to data
  • provide a forum for individual projects interested in using and/or sharing services

This effort promotes creation of GEOSS, the Global Earth Observations System of Systems, by which the broad spectrum of users of Earth Observations data will have access to interoperable tools to access, process, and visualize data.

This wiki offers a forum for discussions and activities within the Cluster, and a space for developing wiki-documentation of the emerging AQ system of systems. (How to edit the wiki)
