Abstract: Plans for the GeoXO satellite system, which will replace the current GOES-R satellites in the early 2030s, include an atmospheric composition instrument, a hyperspectral infrared sounder, and a higher resolution imager that will be used together to provide greatly enhanced observations of atmospheric gasses and suspended small particles that impair air quality. As with any federal investment, the cost must be more than offset by benefits. However, measurement of the health-related impacts of reducing exposure to poor air quality is a highly specialized field of economics. The goal is to synthesize existing research that can be used by NOAA and other researchers to identify and address gaps in our understanding of the economic benefits of reducing public exposure to poor air quality.
