Research Description

Emissions Estimates Using NASA Satellite Data
I will be using a program called the Wisconsin Horizontal Interpolation Program for Satellites to determine whether it is possible to develop an algorithm to accurately track, retroactively, air pollutant emissions. This would be useful as a temporary replacement to monitoring technologies in countries that have experienced a level of industrial growth that outpaces that of their regulations, similar to the situation that China finds itself in.
