Linkages Across PM Policy and Research: Examining the Policy Relevant Findings from the PM2.5 Supersites Program

spacer

Abstract: The PM2.5 Supersites program was designed to complement routinely operating PM2.5 networks by providing enhanced temporal and chemical/physical composition data in addressing three overarching objectives: supporting health effects and exposure research, advanced monitoring methods development and testing, and increased air quality characterization in support of national and State emission reduction strategies. As the Supersites are in the final stages of an intensive measurement campaign in eight cities across the United States that commenced in 1999, the program is expected to provide relevant information for the technical assessments underlying development of national and State implementation plans (SIPs) that currently are underway and expected to continue over the next five years. The objective of this paper is to illustrate the program design attributes and highlight selected preliminary findings from the Supersites, and related PM research efforts, that should support these planning efforts.
