Earth Science Information Partnership (ESIP) Air Quality Cluster: http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Air_Quality_Cluster

Purpose: The overarching objective of the AQ Cluster is to build better connections, both technical and interpersonal, between and among air quality data providers and data users; please participate at any level you would like in any of our activities.

GEOSS AIP Air Quality Workgroup: http://sites.google.com/site/geosspilot2/air-quality-and-health-working-group/aq-wg-telecons

Purpose: The Group on Earth Observations (or GEO) is coordinating international efforts to build a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). This emerging public infrastructure is interconnecting a diverse and growing array of instruments and systems for monitoring and forecasting changes in the global environment. This “system of systems” supports policymakers, resource managers, science researchers and many other experts and decision-makers.

Air Quality & Health: An AIP-2 Working Group: http://www.ogcnetwork.net/node/407

Purpose: This 2nd Phase of AIP aims to establish "persistent operational exemplars" of services that support the GEOSS Societal Benefit Areas (SBAs) using a consistent architecture. This 2nd phase will augment the Initial Operating Capability of the GEOSS Core Infrastructure previously established by the 1st Phase of the AIP and other GEO Tasks.

Outcomes include best practices and interoperability arrangements suitable for an operational capability. An aim of the Pilot is to reach consensus on architectural elements that initiatives supporting geospatial information systems can carry forward into operations, thereby increasing the overall level of interoperability.
