User’s Manual for the Co - Benefits Risk Assessment (COBRA) Screening Model

Co-Benefits Risk Assessment (COBRA) Health Impacts Screening and Mapping Tool is a screening tool that provides preliminary estimates of the impact of air pollution emission changes on ambient particulate matter (PM) air pollution concentrations, translates this into health effect impacts, and then monetizes these impacts.

This User Manual will acquaint you with the the tool, provide a quick-start tutorial, and options for data, scenarios, and results.
