RELEASES NASA SATELLITE TECHNOLOGY TO MONITOR MOTOR VEHICLE POLLUTION VIDEO ***ALL TIMES EASTERN***

VIDEO FILE FOR JULY 18, 2000 UPCOMING TELEVISION EVENTS

***************************** NEWS RELEASES NASA SATELLITE TECHNOLOGY TO MONITOR MOTOR VEHICLE POLLUTION Cities and states may soon have a new high-tech tool in the battle against automotive air pollution, thanks to NASA satellite technology originally developed to track global greenhouse gases and the Earth's protective ozone layer. As envisioned, NASA's atmospheric remote sensing technology will be adapted to an autonomous roadside system to monitor motor vehicle emissions. Cars and trucks will pass through a low-power light beam, without stopping or slowing down. Space-age sensor technology will instantly analyze vehicle exhaust pollutants important to local and state governments working to meet federally mandated air quality standards.
