OMI NO2 and Georgia/Florida Smoke Illustrations -- Rhusar Jul 16, 2007 1:10 AM

Hi, Following a request form Steve Young, we have prepared a simple screencast on the May 2007 Georgia/Florida smoke event which is also an Exceptional Event, subject of regulatory actions by Neil Frank & Co at OAQPS. Rich Scheffe and Rich Poirot may be interested in the multi sensor/network/organisational data integration. Frank Lindsay and Lawrence Friedl may like the use of satellite data for AQ analysis. The 1min 30sec GA/FL Smoke screencast is a flash file on our server and on YouTube. The Google Earth file with the corresponding data is here for those interested in recreational exploratory data analysis. Another 1 min 30 sec screencast is a preliminary OMI NO2 analysis, possibly useful for NOX emission verification. It is available as flash and YouTube video. The Google Earth file that was used for the recording is also here. Needless to say, the all data are accessible through GEOSS-compliant standard web services and being registered in the master GEOSS registry. Enjoy!

Thanks Rudy. Just viewed it on YouTube -- excellent! Sorry I won't see you in person in Madison. Cheers,

Many thanks Rudy! I have sent these links around to all the atmospheric scientists here at HQ. This will further our work on exploring new uses for these data and how to best visualize them. Thanks to your team. best

Frank, All: Thanks. Please think of these illustrations as evolving teasers. (The OMI-NO2 movie was just updated). If any of you have application ideas or wishes, please let us know. We are now idea-limited, particularly short of ideas from your diverse perspectives.

EPA Presentation -- SYoung Jul 27, 2007 10:27 AM

Dear WUSTLers: I am preparing a presentation for my political boss for next week and would like to show her some of the material but need to do it probably in static PowerPoint form. Could you please send me images as JPEGs or similar for key pieces, and if you have the videos in WMV format, the videos too? It appears that EPA has blocked YouTube or at least we have some security issue that seems to prevent viewing the videos in Flash or YouTube within our environment... (whereas I can view them at home with no problem!)

I'd like to see what I can package together to present in off-line mode next week; need whatever you can send ASAP, thanks, the actual briefing is Wednesday 8/1. Thanks!! Cheers,

Hi Steve, In addition to what Erin has provided, for your consideration, I made another PPT slide (also attached) expanding on the utility of the OMI NO2 data for emission characterization.

NO2 Movie -- FLindsay 17:45, 30 July 2007 (EDT)

Hi Erin, many thanks for all your help with these cool NO2 movies. Any chance you could send Ernie the movie file directly... he wanted the highest quality (not u-tube) for a talk on Monday. He's been great in helping put forward this work in the broad AQ community. Here's his email... and thanks!!

Hi Ernie, Here are links to a few versions of the OMI NO2 movie:

Let me know if you need these to be bigger or a different format
