The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) on NASA's Aqua spacecraft has been returning daily global observations of Earth's atmospheric constituents and properties since 2002, and its ability to provide measurements through the atmospheric column and in near real-time have made it's data suitable for applications involving air quality and human health. Currently in development are temperature inversion maps that can potentially correlate to respiratory health problems, dengue fever and West Nile virus outbreak prediction maps, and maps that can be used to make assessments of air quality. This talk will communicate the Project's approach and its effort to date of its applications pipeline, including identifying applications, utilizing science expertise, hiring outside experts to assist with development and dissemination, visualization, and leveraging existing NASA data frameworks and organizations. In addition, a new web-based browse tool being developed by the AIRS Project for easy access to application product imagery will also be described.
