Novel Approaches to Improving Air Pollution Emissions Information Kick-off

November 16, 2010 Emission inventories are used by scientists and decision makers working to understand and improve air quality. Such inventories include the type, amount, location, and timing of the emissions and are used in a variety of policy and research applications. Consequently, the quality of emissions information is a strong determinant of the model output fidelity judged against the atmosphere. Improvements in the fidelity of air quality models and in the understanding of emission sources will directly strengthen the ability to design effective control strategies to reduce air pollution. These inventories are relied upon to develop effective control strategies and reliable information about air quality trends for accountability, and to help produce accurate air quality forecasts.

EPA's National Center for Environmental Research, Science to Achieve Results (STAR) grantees will discuss the objectives, approaches, and plans for their new research projects with scientists from EPA, state agencies, other federal agencies, and industry.
