NASA ARSET recently completed an advanced online training titled MODIS to VIIRS Transition for Air Quality Applications. This 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.
