Characterization of Satellite-Derived Air Quality Measurements for Health Applications


  • Adverse air quality (AQ) increases health morbidities including cardiovascular, respiratory, diabetes and COVID-19.
  • Environmental Protection Agency’s ground-based monitors are often used to predict AQ for areas outside of their range.
  • Satellite data may provide higher spatial and temporal resolution AQ data.
  • Assess the potential of using satellite AQ data of PM2.5, NO2, SO2, and O3 concentrations for correlating AQ with diabetes and COVID-19 morbidity.
