During the last review of the secondary ozone (O(sub 3)) NAAQS, as part of the development of the 1996 O(sub 3) Staff Paper (SP), EPA conducted analyses that assessed national O(sub 3) air quality, vegetation exposures and risk, and impacts to economic benefits. At the time of the last review, large rural sections of the country had little or no monitor coverage, including important growing regions for agricultural crops and forested ecosystems. Since O(sub 3) monitor coverage in agricultural and rural/remote sites has changed little since the last review, EPA must again rely on generated O(sub 3) air quality information in non-monitored areas to provide national O(sub 3) exposure coverage. Given a number of recent air quality related developments, EPA has decided to use a different method to generate a national exposure surface in this review. In this report we present analyses of national O(sub 3) air quality, vegetation exposures and risk, and impact to economic benefits that incorporates improved methods for estimating O3 at unmonitored locations. The authors present quantitative evaluations of these new methods and an application of several such methods to improve upon the results of the 1996 analysis. Ultimately, our purpose is to evaluate the economic benefits associated with several alternative O3 standards currently under consideration.
