The objective of this research project is to identify cost-effective emissions control strategies to reduce regional exposure to ozone and aerosol pollution.


A multi-scale, photochemical, three-dimensional computer model will be utilized to examine the formation, transport, and control of ozone and aerosols over the eastern half of the United States.

Expected Results:

By predicting responses of the atmosphere to reductions in emissions, effective air quality control strategies can be developed.
