    Topic: Measuring Air Quality from Space: Insight from DISCOVER-AQ

    Abstract: Predicting surface aerosol loadings from satellite measurements is essential to guiding air quality policy and is significantly affected by horizontal- and vertical-scale variability. In order to improve the use of satellites to monitor air quality, a multi-year airborne field campaign entitled DISCOVER-AQ (Deriving Information on Surface conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality) flew four airborne campaigns between 2011 and 2014. In situ aerosol measurements in four locations - Baltimore, California’s San Joaquin Valley, Houston and Denver - highlight the possibilities and challenges associated with the use of satellites to measure air quality.
