Air Quality

Managing for Extreme Event Impacts on Air Quality under a Changing Climate

Through a grant with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, our study seeks to understand the current challenges among California air quality districts in managing extreme events in the face of climate change. Our study also is looking at the role of information in adaptation processes and what information air districts need to move forward in planning for extreme events in the face of climate change.

A survey of local air quality district managers is published here (open access):
