Policy and Decision Supports

Air quality models have become indispensable tools in air quality management. This session will focus on research towards science-based policy and applications of models as decision support tools. The session will cover various applications that would inform the decision-making process for air quality improvement. Work that integrates air quality science and modeling with other relevant disciplines such as policy, economics, health, or climate science, and with models used in those disciplines, will be highlighted. Conceptual efforts demonstrating or exploring integrated assessment models and decision support systems will be covered as well. This session topics include:
