New York Climate and Health Project: Model Projections

New York Climate and Health Project: Model Projections

These model projections employ the 2050 IPCC A2 emissions scenario: (a) temperature changes simulated with the Mesoscale Modeling System Generation 5 (MM5) regional model; (b) ozone changes simulated with the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system; (c) land-use changes simulated with the Slope, Land-Use Elevation, Urban, Transportation, and Hillshading (SLEUTH) model; and (d) change in ozone-related deaths.
