In this seminar in the Environmental Health Department seminar series, "Climate Change: Science, Health, and Politics", Dr. Selin will discuss the scientific issues surrounding air quality, and how it interacts with climate change both from the perspective of emissions and chemistry. She will then describe her group's recent research on the health and economic impacts of air quality, specifically addressing the economic costs of morbidities and mortalities from ozone and particulate matter in the U.S., Europe, China, and globally. New results on co-benefits for air quality and health from climate policies in the U.S. will be presented.
