TALK: How data science supports the global Tropospheric Ozone Assessment Report?
Colloquium by PD Dr. Martin G. Schultz, Jülich Supercomputing Centre, Forschungszentrum Jülich
30th Nov 2020, 5:00 pm.
The Tropospheric Ozone Assessment Report (TOAR) is an international activity involving more than 200 scientists, who summarize the state-of-research on tropospheric ozone, its global distribution and trends. Ozone is an important air pollutant with short and long-term impacts on human health, vegetation, and climate. The first phase of TOAR has recently been concluded. It produced 10 peer-reviewed articles in the open access journal Elementa – Science of the Anthropocene and one of the world’s largest collections of ground-level ozone measurements, which are freely available from the JSC web service https://join.fz-juelich.de. Over 30 independent follow-up publications have resulted from TOAR-I. Recently, TOAR began its second phase, aiming at an updated assessment in 2024. Again, this will be supported by JSC’s data infrastructure, but also through the development of new statistical methods and machine learning concepts, funded through the ERC Advanced Grant IntelliAQ. This talk will briefly summarize the main achievements of TOAR-I, introduce the enhanced TOAR data infrastructure under development at JSC and provide a glimpse into the machine learning activities of my Earth System Data Exploration group at JSC.
