|Location:||EPA in Research Triangle Park, Auditorium C111
and Online Webinar
Please join us for a Science to Achieve Results (STAR) progress review meeting on research projects from the Request for Applications (RFA) Black Carbon's Role in Global to Local Scale Climate and Air Energy. Registration is free and open to the public.
STAR grantees and EPA scientists will discuss progress on their projects on black carbon, which contributes to human health impacts, visibility degradation and climate change. These projects focus on various aspects of the black carbon issue, such as better accounting for its emissions, tracking its climate-relevant properties as it ages in the atmosphere, and better representing its ability to impact formation of cloud droplets.
This RFA supports the National Program, Air, Climate and Energy (ACE) Research Program, which explores transdisciplinary research, and addresses the complex global change and air quality issues that we face today. Even with the improvement of air quality, many continue to suffer from cardiovascular disease, asthma and other health problems that result from air pollution. One of ACE's research goals is to assess human and ecosystem exposures and effects caused by air pollutants and climate change. ACE research also aims to provide data and tools that can help prevent and reduce air pollutant emissions in ways that are sustainable, innovative and cost-effective.
