Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A modeling framework, which incorporates optimization and health analyses into air quality management and addresses issues of multiple geographic scales, is presented., Called "Framework for Rapid Emissions SCenario and Health impact ESTimation" (FRESH-EST), it rapidly estimates concentrations and health impacts of alternative emissions scenarios at the urban scale. FRESH-EST incorporates health impact analysis techniques that can help formulate emission reductions strategies that best reduce the burden of disease while considering vulnerability factors, e.g., population density, demographic factors, and existing disease rates. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the A&WMA's 109th Annual Conference & Exhibition (New Orleans, LA 6/20-23/2016).
