Instruments on EOS Aura, EnviSat and other platforms are producing high quality measurements that can be used in pseudo-operational applications and for the development and demonstration of improved products and assimilation methods. Within NOAA, researchers are currently working with products from research instruments in the following areas: the assimilation of ozone products into numerical weather models, the development of ozone profile and other trace gas retrieval algorithms for use with future operational instruments, the development and validation of air quality models and forecasts, the improvement of UV Index forecasts, and the addition of new resources for hazard identification and ozone layer and ozone hole monitoring. This poster gives additional information on these applications and describes some of our research goals, activities and plans.
