Capps, S., R. Pinder, E. Cooter, M. Turner, D. Henze, P. Percell, S. Zhao, M. Russell, AND A. Hakami. “Steps towards assessing sources of ozone damages to human health and ecosystems with the CMAQ adjoint”. Presented at 2013 Annual CMAS Conference, Chapel Hill, NC, October 28 - 30, 2013.
The Clean Air Act supports the establishment of a national standard for ambient concentrations of atmospheric pollutants to protect human health and public welfare (CAA, 1990). The primary standard has been viewed as su¬cient for also protecting public welfare. We seek to explore how emissions a ect these regulatory endpoints di erently in the CMAQ chemical transport modeling framework.
The National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) Atmospheric Modeling and Analysis Division (AMAD) conducts research in support of EPA mission to protect human health and the environment. AMAD research program is engaged in developing and evaluating predictive atmospheric models on all spatial and temporal scales for forecasting the air quality and for assessing changes in air quality and air pollutant exposures, as affected by changes in ecosystem management and regulatory decisions. AMAD is responsible for providing a sound scientific and technical basis for regulatory policies based on air quality models to improve ambient air quality. The models developed by AMAD are being used by EPA, NOAA, and the air pollution community in understanding and forecasting not only the magnitude of the air pollution problem, but also in developing emission control policies and regulations for air quality improvements.
