Atmospheric Modeling & Analysis Research
EPA's Atmospheric Modeling and Analysis researchers lead the development and evaluation of predictive atmospheric models on all spatial and temporal scales. The atmospheric models are used to assess changes in air quality and air pollutant exposures; as affected by changes in ecosystem management and regulatory decisions. They are also used to help forecast the nation's air quality.
Atmospheric modelers provide a sound scientific and technical basis for policies to improve ambient air quality. The models developed by EPA are used by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the air pollution community to understand and forecast air pollution and to develop emission control policies for air quality improvements.
EPA applies air quality models to support key integrated, multidisciplinary science research. This includes linking air quality models to other models in the source to outcome continuum to effectively address issues involving human health and ecosystem exposure science.
