What We Do

We coordinate classroom trainings, webinars, and workshops for state air agency staff. These opportunities help to ensure that our state air planners have the necessary information and skills to understand and address air quality issues in the region.

We provide technical air quality support to our member states by performing regional air quality model simulations. We use these models to both understand the causes of air pollution in the region and to explore air pollution mitigation strategies.

Our analyses of observed air pollution and weather trends allow our member states to track their emissions reduction programs, show compliance with regulations, and explore feedbacks between regional climate and air pollution.

We use computer models to simulate and forecast the air pollution emissions from natural and man-made sources. Our emissions forecasts are used by our states to test different control strategies and to demonstrate progress towards meeting their clean air goals.
