Assessment of air quality impacts of global change

Assessment of Air Quality Impacts of Global Change

  • Fills a vital niche within CCSP

    • Focused on consequences for air quality managers

    • Connecting global change to local health and control investment implications.

  • Designed and implemented in close cooperation with OAR

    • Selection of tools, methods, timeframes, etc.

    • Future cooperation needs to shift from methods to message

  • Complements OAR work focused in other directions

    • Air quality impacts on climate change

    • Intercontinental flows of air pollutants

    • Public information programs related to climate change

    • Integrated analysis tools for air quality management

    • Alternative motor vehicle technology development

    • Future technology and emissions scenario development

    • Biogenic and wildfire emissions estimation

    • Global integrated assessment modeling
