Estimating Mortality Risk Reduction and Economic Benefits
from Controlling Ozone Air Pollution
This new report from The National Academies evaluates the Environmental Protection Agency's scientific approaches for estimating how to reduce premature death due to ozone exposure and monetary benefits associated with reductions in ozone exposure for the National Ambient Air Quality Standards, which the EPA uses as a baseline to control criteria pollutants.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on April 22, 2008 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
