DISCOVER-AQ – A four-year campaign to improve the use of satellites to monitor air quality for public health and environmental benefit. The mission began in 2011 with targeted airborne and ground-based observations and will continue through 2014. DISCOVER-AQ will enable more effective use of current and future satellites to diagnose ground level conditions influencing air quality. Improved diagnosis of conditions from space promises better strategies for managing and reducing the factors contributing to poor air quality.
