A workshop to help scientists and the operational air quality community get up to speed on using data products from the NASA Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution (TEMPO) satellite is scheduled for mid-July in the Shelby Center for Science and Technology at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH).

Scheduled for launch in the 2020 timeframe, geostationary TEMPO will provide hourly measurements of several stratospheric and tropospheric pollutants over North America, from Mexico City to northern Canada, at about 10 kilometer resolution.

The July 12-13 workshop, which is sponsored by NASA's Applied Sciences Program and hosted by UAH’s Earth System Science Center and Atmospheric Science Department, as well as NASA’s SPORT program, will focus on how TEMPO data might be used for such things as air quality planning and assessment, disaster response, emissions monitoring and research, and measuring the ecological impacts of specific pollutants.

Both in-person and free, web-based registration options are available. More information is available at
