This project sought to develop diverse methodological approaches to address environmental justice (EJ) concerns of relevance to air pollution regulation in California. The project consisted of several interlocking research projects, including: (1) a landscape analysis of environmental hazard and air pollution burden disparities in the Bay Area; (2) development of an Environmental Justice Screening Method (EJSM) to identify areas of environmental justice concern with regard to the cumulative impacts of hazard proximity, air pollution expo sure and estimated health risk, and social vulnerability; (3) the implementation of the EJSM pollution exposure to evaluate the hypothetical siting of a power plant facility; (4) a statewide analysis of the association between ambient pollution exposures and adverse perinatal outcomes; (5) the implementation of a community-based participatory ground truthing research project to evaluate the coverage of emissions inventory databases of localized emission sources and sensitive receptors and to build community confidence in the research and regulatory process.
