Air Quality and Public Health Data workshop

The University of Pittsburgh University Center on Social and Urban Research (UCSUR) is hosting a discussion about the state of air quality research in our region with the National Academy of Sciences’ and National Academy of Engineering’s Science & Engineering Ambassadors Program.

The goal of this Air Quality and Public Health Data workshop, hosted by The Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center, is to elevate the shared understanding of emissions sources, monitoring techniques, modeling, and how the state of science affects decisions about public health. Leading air quality experts from the Ambassadors program will give short presentations followed by breakout discussions around priority topics.

The featured Science & Engineering Ambassadors include:

Emily Elliott, University of Pittsburgh
“Hard NOx: Pinning Down the Science of Nitrogen Oxide Pollution”
