Air quality research and decision support  +
Data and forecasts submitted by the AIRNow partner agencies is distributed in many ways to help protect public health: * web site ( * 30 Media outlets like: ** ** ** Look at the weather page on USA Today * EnviroFlash – email alerting service * And many others….  +
Data from AQS is used by other organizations to evaluate the effectiveness of the current air quality standards and to assess where the standards are being violated. It is also a major source of input to epidemiological and other health studies.  +
Exposure for sensitive populations; analysis  +
Feed emissions data to air quality models in support of health analysis  +
Indirect - air pollution, humidity, temperature, etc.  +
Intended target audience, e.g., epidemiological studies  +
No applications to health studies. However, the datasets mediated through DataFed are suitable for health studies, particularly in conjunction with the 1km-resolution US population data.  +

Real-time ozone measurements being sent to AirNow determine “ozone action days” or days when it is unhealthy for children, elderly and those with weak respiratory systems to go outside. CASTNET data is used for ecological health studies, less so for human health.  +
The outputs of CMAQ for baseline and emissions control cases are post-processed to create spatial fields of ozone and PM2.5 concentrations in a format for input to health-benefits calculation models. In addition, ozone and PM2.5 from CMAQ are blended with ambient data through the application of various “data fusion” techniques to provide concentration fields for analysis with health effects data.  +
Weather and climate data and forecasts have many health-related impacts.  +
