The workshop brought together experts from the different sectors, such as forestry, environment, pollution control, meteorology and research — all of them part of the larger community working together to address the transboundary haze pollution issue affecting the region.
Each participant brought with them invaluable experiences from their work to share with others. These products include satellite imageries, hotspot and haze information derived from satellite data, and numerical model outputs. Much of the Workshop focused on interactive and practical exercises to equip the participants with the skills to interpret the products and derive information that could be applied in ground operations.
In addition to the lectures and exercises, participants were taken out of the classroom for technical visits to an Air Quality Monitoring station and the Central Forecast Office of the Meteorological Service Singapore MSS. Mr Somdet Champee from the Royal Forestry Department of Thailand felt that the workshop was useful for operational staff and policy-makers alike, and commended the organisers for including relevant topics that met the learning objectives of participants. During the Workshop, the interpretation of S2S prediction was demonstrated using scenario-based simulations.
The exercise was designed to enable participants to make informed decisions for each scenario using S2S predictions. Interpreting satellite data requires an understanding of the basic principles of remote sensing and how satellite data are processed. The Workshop included hands-on exercises for participants to practise applying the concepts taught by interpreting satellite imageries of past haze episodes. Training is a continuous process. As the regional centre for monitoring, assessing and providing early warning for transboundary haze, ASMC will continue to deliver capability building programmes focusing on remote sensing technologies and their applications in environmental monitoring.
The aim remains to enable the community to take advantage of the advances afforded by the latest technologies through sharing of expertise and knowledge transfer. Page Number Page 1 Page 2 Page 1.
