Air Modeling Research
Researchers provide sophisticated models and tools that are widely used to manage air quality across the nation to develop more cost effective and efficient ways to manage air quality. The models are used to provide a forecast of air quality under different regulatory scenarios or strategies to control emissions. Models are also used to predict and characterize exposures for input into health studies.
- Develop modeling tools to characterize air quality and predict exposures at local to urban scales, regional to continental scales and global to hemispheric scales.
- Link air modeling tools with modeling tools for other media (e.g., water) and develop an integrated multimedia modeling system.
