The ESIP Air Quality Cluster has a number of projects, both active and past, on this wiki. Your participation is welcome!

The overarching objective of the AQ Cluster is to connect air quality data consumers with the providers of those data. 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 for improving the flow of earth science data to air quality management
  • provide a forum for individual projects interested in using and/or sharing services
  • create a user-driven space for describing, documenting, and providing feedback about the many datasets and tools for adding values to data

This website offers a forum for discussions and activities within the Cluster. ([How to edit the wiki])

Cluster Summary, More background information

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

Building Blocks

Building blocks of the system of systems include:

  • Earth Observations (EO) datasets
  • Tools for working with EO data which add value in one or more ways, such as:
    • manipulation of the data (subset, regrid, etc.)
    • visualization of the data
    • exporting the data
