Integrating Multiple Perspectives of Air Quality Team (IMPAQT)
IMPAQT brings together observations from ground-based monitoring with airborne field campaign data to better understand the value of satellite observations, improve air quality models, and provide an integrated assessment of air quality challenges.

Laura Judd led the NASA Synergistic TEMPO Air Quality Science (STAQS) mission during the summer of 2023 to integrate TEMPO satellite observations with traditional air quality monitoring to improve understanding of air quality science and increase societal benefit
Jim Crawford, a NASA Senior Scientist for Atmospheric Chemistry, explains why the TEMPO mission will help us better understand what’s in the air!
