Virtual NASA ARSET Training

NASA ARSET recently completed an advanced online training titled MODIS to VIIRS Transition for Air Quality ApplicationsThis special one-part training series compared MODIS and VIIRS air quality datasets, outlined improvements, and showed users how to obtain and process the data using Jupyter Notebooks through a live demonstration.  Pawan Gupta (USRA/MSFC) and Melanie Follette-Cook (GESTAR/MSU/GSFC) led the training.  Brock Blevins (SSAI/614), Selwyn Hudson-Odoi (UMBC/614), David Barbato (UMBC/614) and Jonathan O’Brien (SSAI/614) supported the training.  In attendance were 755 participants from 77 countries and 38 US states.  Approximately 500 unique organizations were represented.  You can learn more about the training and access the materials in both English and Spanish at:
