2014/15-2018/19 • $360,000 • PI
Pressing scientific questions in air quality and climate will be addressed using a combination of satellite observations, ground-based measurements, and a global three-dimensional model of atmospheric composition. Emphasis will be placed on quantitative interpretation of satellite observations...

Computational Hardware to Interpret Satellite Observations of Atmospheric Composition for Air Quality and Climate Applications

2016/17 • $149,946 • PI
Funds are requested for a computational hardware to support research in air quality, climate, and biogeochemical cycling. The primary hardware requirement is sufficient hard-disk storage. A secondary hardware requirement is for an associated computing environment. The proposed infrastructure...

Instrumentation to Improve Satellite Observations of Fine Particulate Matter

2015/16 • $149,356 • PI,CO
The World Health Organization estimates that exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is the leading environmentally-related cause of premature mortality worldwide. Ground-based observations have insufficient coverage at the global scale to assess long-term human exposure to PM2.5. Satellite...

Measurements to Evaluate and Improve Satellite-Based Estimates of Air Quality

2014/15 • $149,688 • PI,CO
The World Health Organization estimates that exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is the leading environmentally-related cause of premature mortality worldwide. Ground-based observations have insufficient coverage at the global scale to assess long-term human exposure to PM2.5. Satellite...

Interpreting satelllite observations of tropospheric composition to improve understanding of climate and air quality

2010/11-2013/14 • $280,000 • PI
Pressing scientific questions in climate and air quality will be addressed using a combination of satellite observations, aircraft and ground-based measurements, as well as a global three-dimensional model of atmospheric composition. Emphasis will be placed on quantitative interpretation of...

Developing technologies to assess long-term exposures of the Canadian population to air pollution: research leading to knowledge-transfer to reduce health effects

2011/12-2013/14 • $221,419 • PI,CO
Epidemiological studies that juxtapose high quality information on health with that of exposures to ambient airpollutants have shown that air pollution adversely affects human health. It is now clear that there are healthimpairments at very low levels of air pollution. An improved understanding...

Instrumentation to Measure Aerosol Mass and Composition for Research to Improve Satellite Remote Sensing and Modeling of Atmospheric Composition

2011/12 • $148,479 • PI
Particles suspended in the atmosphere, known as aerosols, have major roles in climate change and air quality. Aerosols affect climate by scattering and absorbing solar radiation, and by affecting cloud properties. Respired aerosols are a significant health hazard. The development of algorithms...
