Smog/Acid Rain R&D

Mid-term review

October 25-27

  • Objectives for the Smog/Acid Rain review
  • MSC program structure
    • Mission
    • Science question
    • Structure of EC Clean Air Program
  • Agenda for Mid-Term review
mid term review objectives
Mid-term review objectives
  • Assess progress against deliverables and milestones agreed to in the Smog/Acid Rain work plan for this fiscal year.
  • Make mid-term changes to address issues identified in oral and written reports.
  • Provide information/ideas for defining next years work plans.
  • Provide information to report to EC senior managers on status of program.
key science role
Key science role
  • Through R&D, provide credible and relevant information for the development of sound public policy on Clean Air and inform Canadians on current and future air quality.
    • building science foundation for policy discussions though the contribution to science assessments
    • developing tools and products to provide services to Canadians [e.g. air quality forecasts]
overarching scientific question
Overarching Scientific Question
  • What are the quantitative relationships between primary particulate and precursor emissions and ambient PM, ozone and acid deposition levels for all regions of Canada ?
structure of clean air program
Structure of Clean Air Program
  • Results-based management and accountability framework [RBMAF]
  • Program described in terms of
    • Intermediate and Ultimate outcomes
    • Activities supporting the achievement of outcomes.
  • Science is but one of several departmental and inter-departmental activities that contribute to achieving the outcomes.

Intermediate Outcomes

Ultimate Outcomes


Targets are

continuously improved

Health and





pollution reduced

Emissions from vehicles,

engines and fuels

are reduced


of air pollution

are reduced

Air quality

is improved



Emissions from industrial

and other sources

are reduced

Canadians take action

to reduce air pollution

science foundation and activities
Science Foundation and Activities
  • Activities in support of RBMAF intermediate outcome : Targets are continuously improved
    • Determine linkages between air quality and human health/environmental impacts.
    • Determine urban/rural sources of PM and its precursors.
    • Assess contributions from natural sources.
    • Evaluation of transcontinental transport.
