Satellite Derived Annual PM2.5 Data Sets in Support of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) is organising a three part webinar series on using satellite derived  PM2.5 data sets.

Recently, annual mean PM2.5 maps have been developed using MODIS, MISR, and NASA_ARSETSeaWiFS observations from 1998-2015 and have been used by organizations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and Greenpeace, to assess global air quality and health impacts. In this webinar, participants will learn how to use this database to analyze PM2.5 over cities using satellite observations. This training will cover accessing the data, analyzing long-term trends, and combining PM2.5 and population data sets to understand long-term exposure.

These webinars are intended to agencies involved in addressing and reporting on United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as, local, regional, state, federal, and international organizations interested in assessing PM2.5 air quality.

The webinars will take place 15, 22 and 29 March. For more information please see
