Extreme Event Impacts on Air Quality and Water Quality with a Changing Global Climate

EPA awarded 12 grants to research the impact of extreme events caused by global climate change on air and water quality. The goal is to seek a better understanding of the hazards and to establish ways for climate scientists, impact assessment modelers, air and water quality managers, and other stakeholders to produce information necessary for sound policy on extreme events impacting air and water quality.
