Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Crew safety is paramount and in some case need to monitor air quality in operating region if fires are present in the region.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Air quality is highly dynamic and not a common occurrence, but is an issue in locations in Canada and Indonesia.

Thematic information requirements:

Air quality and emissions

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Typically rely on government monitoring (e.g. NOAA) for up to date information and trend analysis.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Maps of forest fires and particulate concentrations.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

None
