Particulate Pollution in Asia: Part 1 (SIM-air Series)

A new working paper in the SIM Series, SIM 20-2009, "Particulate Pollution in Asia - Part 1: Multi-pollutant Modeling of Sources, Contributions, & Health Impacts"

This paper is intended to develop a broader perspective of understanding the air pollution mixture of fine and coarse particulates in Asia (with 2000 baseline) and aims to identify the information needed for a sound assessment of the impact of PM pollution on public health.

The modeling exercise was conducted for all of Asia using established multi-pollutant emissions inventory's, STEM eulerian dispersion model coupled with RAMS meteorological processor, and health impacts methodology in SIM-06-2008.
