Meet Megan McKeown, this NASA Intern Analyzed Your SCOOL Data!

I can’t remember when my fascination with meteorology began. Perhaps it was in middle school when we began making cloud observations in science class. It excited me that people were able to conduct science outside of the classroom and I was overjoyed when my turn finally came to make my own weather observation. I was shocked, however, at how surprisingly challenging it was to identify and distinguish the different cloud types…...

Ask Questions to NASA and EPA Panelists About the Air You Breathe and Air Pollution Research

Air pollution is not just limited to near the surface of the Earth where we work, live, and breathe, it also occurs high in the atmosphere.  Here at NASA Langley, Principle Investigator Jim Crawford is working with a team of scientists to measure and understand air quality throughout the atmosphere using surface, airborne, and satellite measurements.  The project is called DISCOVER-AQ, which stands for “Deriving Information on...

Mapping Our World and DISCOVER-AQ

Understanding the ground level conditions influencing air quality is the primary goal of NASA’s DISCOVER-AQ mission, a four-year campaign that makes targeted airborne and ground-based observations to improve the use of satellites to diagnose near-surface air quality. This information is important because satellites have difficulty in distinguishing between pollution aloft and at the surface where humans and ecosystems are exposed to...
