Abstract:

Long-Term Goals The long-term goal of this research is to develop an initialization scheme for a multi-dimensional, predictive aerosol model in coastal regions. The initialization scheme will have global coverage and include data gathering, quality control and data assimilation of the available aerosol observations, including satellite aerosol retrievals, ground-based remote sensing, point measurements, and the previous aerosol forecast. OBJECTIVES The objectives of this program are to 1 investigate and evaluate the existing and proposed aerosol retrievals from satellites for applicability to aerosol model initialization and 2 develop and test aerosol analysis and data assimilation techniques using satellite and other aerosol measurements.
