Primary Focus:

What does the science tell us about the pollutants and scale of the control areas (local, super-regional, national) needed to address the new ozone and fine particle standards over the next ten years? How does this relate to the controls needed to address other key concerns like NO2, SO2, Hg and regional haze?

The meeting Objectives are threefold:

  • To facilitate interaction among data analysts in MARAMA agencies and encourage them to work together.
  • To improve MARAMA agencies’ ability to use data to address key policy issues.
  • To provide a forum for learning about recent research that would help inform the policy making process.
