Global air pollution monitoring debuts at AGU press briefing, May 30

NASAs Terra spacecraft has produced the most complete view of the worlds air pollution ever assembled. Policymakers and scientists now have, for the first time, a way to identify the major sources of air pollution and closely track where the pollution goes all year round and anywhere on Earth.

The first observations from this unprecedented environmental monitoring capability will be released at a press briefing Wednesday, May 30, at 11:00 a.m. EDT at the American Geophysical Union meeting in Boston, Mass. The event will be held in Room 111 of Bostons Hynes Convention Center, 900 Boylston Street.

The panelists at the briefing will be:

  • John Gille, National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colo.
  • James Drummond, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  • Jean-Francois Lamarque, National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colo.
  • Daniel Jacob, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.

Media can register for the briefing at the AGU Press Room, Room 104 of the Hynes Convention Center, beginning May 29 at 7:30 a.m. For more information, contact Harvey Leifert, AGU Public Information Manager, tel. 202-777-7507, e-mail hleifert@agu.org after May 28: AGU Press Room, tel. 617-954-3138; fax 617-954-3144.

Visualizations of the new global observations will be broadcast on NASA TV on Wednesday, May 30 at 12 noon. NASA TV is broadcast on the GE2 satellite which is located on Transponder 9C, at 85 degrees West longitude, frequency 3880.0 MHz, audio 6.8 MHz.
