NASA ROSES 2009 - NAAPS/VIEWS

Extended the database and website infrastructure of the VIEWS system (described below) to incorporate results from the Navy Aerosol Analysis and Prediction System (NAAPS) in collaboration with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) and NASA in order to provide better analysis of the impact of aerosol and gaseous pollutants from international sources on U.S. air quality, and to utilize these data to achieve a more thorough assessment of exceptional, episodic pollution events and the long range transport of aerosols. To facilitate these analyses, an extended database schema and new set of interactive web tools was developed and added to the VIEWS system.
