Public health officials need indicators of harmful pollution to help warn and protect the general public. Aerosol remote sensing research both measures and models aerosol parameters, revealing how pollution forms and travels. Better information-sharing and cross-interpretation between health and research communities would make scientific data more relevant to society. This project links these two communities to guide health-care policies and practices, ultimately better protecting Canadians.
