Significant reductions in ambient levels of particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter less than 2.5 micrometers (PM
The purposes of this workshop are to (1) Discuss previous accountability work, (2) identify data needs, and (3) discuss approaches that may be used to prospectively design research to assess the public health benefits from implementation of these large-scale changes in levels of air pollution. Consistent with the recent North American Research Strategy for Tropospheric Ozone report titled, “Technical Challenges of Multipollutant Air Quality Management” this workshop aims to ensure that the necessary methods and data will be available to verify the relationship between reductions in air pollution emissions, ambient concentrations, human exposures and public health benefits to determine whether the regulations are implemented as originally projected and the intended benefits are realized. Discussions will focus on improving the limitations identified in earlier studies, especially in relation to interpretation of the study and ensuring proper study design, collected data and analytical approaches. To meet these objectives, the workshop has been organized with invited expert panelists to build on previous work and identify critical data needs.
Members of the public may attend the workshop as observers. Space is limited, and reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
