Overview of Data Types

BlueSky Resources aggregates air quality datasets from a variety of sensors and platforms, from ground-level to satellite, along with complementary data sets that, together, allow for greater insights and a broader understanding of challenges and concerns relating to industry emissions and their impacts.

The technological landscape for measuring and observing air pollution and emissions is rapidly evolving and progressing, yet there is no one single silver bullet measurement approach. Every measurement comes with its own strengths and limitations. Taking advantage of multiple measurements at different spatial scales and temporal resolutions, we obtain a complete and current understanding of air quality at sites of interest.

The datasets currently available in AirLogic are:

Satellite: TROPOMI, MODIS, GHGSAT PULSE
Ground Sensors: AIRNOW, PURPLEAIR
Weather: GFS

Other ground sensor, satellite and weather datasets can be made available upon request.
