CLIMATE SYSTEM AND HAZE: ISSUES, TECHNOLOGY AND IMPACT

Synopses

Dr Jason Blake Cohen will give a quick introduction into what “haze” is and how it impacts the climate system. He will also share some results from both data analysis and modeling exercises to help strengthen this linkage between haze and the climate system, and ultimately look at consequences of such actions on the future climate state. Fires and smoke haze in the region can affect the air quality over Singapore. Throughout the years, Singapore has experienced several haze episodes resulting from fires in the region. Mr Ang Chieng Hai’s talk on “Fires and Smoke Haze Monitoring Using Earth Observation Satellites” will discuss how remote sensing using earth observation satellites is employed by Meteorological Service Singapore to monitor the regional fires and smoke haze situation.
