Human Health Stakeholder Virtual Workshop

This workshop was designed for members of the Human Health Sector community who use NOAA's remote sensing data in the fields of extreme temperature, air quality, diseases, and harmful algal blooms.

This workshop gathered feedback on NOAA's environmental satellite data products through structured discussion. These user needs will be used to inform the remote sensing capabilities of NOAA's next generation of environmental satellites.
