Poor air quality causes an estimated 2.6 to 4.4 million premature deaths per year1-3. Hazardous conditions form when meteorological components allow the accumulation of pollutants in the near-surface atmosphere4-8. Global warming-driven changes to atmospheric circulation and the hydrological cycle9-13 are expected to alter the meteorological components that control pollutant build-up and dispersal5-8,14, but the magnitude, direction, geographic footprint, and public health impact of this… CONTINUE READING
