Goal for day 2: Complete hands on section and narrative; allow group to discuss citizen science

Location: H114, back

Session 1: 9:30 – 10:45

  • Discuss ground observation; decide what can reasonably be done
  • Discuss data sharing; provide suggestions for what data could be shared and how
  • Discuss links to satellite analysis
  • Define the narrative for the chapter, "why citizen science"
Case study:
Specific event with photos; urban pollution
California fires? then urban pollution
use EO NH and smog blog as practice to match satellite aod, true color, and ground photos
June 21, 2005 - good example of poor air quality (on EO)
shows in data on airnow.gov

EO story (why citizen science):
http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Study/Partnerships/

Pull in all of the pieces of the procedure.

Involve scientists, how? Involve state environmental quality offices? Talk to Forrest Mims or David Brooks for other ideas.
