NASA Hyperwall to Illustrate the Impact of Climate Change on Respiratory Health

Climate change has an undeniable effect on health, particularly respiratory health, as associated increases in pollutants and allergens are expected to continue to rise globally.

ATS 2023 International Conference attendees will have a unique opportunity to get a planet-wide perspective of the current and projected impact of climate change via the NASA Hyperwall, which will be located in Booth 109 of the Exhibit Hall. The Exhibit Hall will be open Sunday–Tuesday, May 21-23, from 10:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. ET in Halls A-B of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

The NASA Hyperwall is a video wall that displays simultaneous high-definition data visualizations and images across multiple screens. Attendees can view themes in astrophysics, earth science, heliophysics, planetary science, and biological and physical sciences gathered from NASA satellites, telescopes, and model data.

During ATS 2023, NASA researchers will present talks with data visualizations that highlight the use of Earth observations for an array of public health applications, including air quality and infectious disease prevention and control. Many existing Hyperwall stories reveal change across space and time, while others display large-scale still images accompanied by descriptive storytelling captions.

“The NASA Hyperwall offers an opportunity for ATS members to interact with NASA researchers and learn about the unique vantage point of Earth-observing satellite data for respiratory health applications,” said John Haynes, program manager for health and air quality applications in the Applied Sciences Program of the NASA Earth Science Division.
