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