Air Quality and Human Health

The same pollutants that exacerbate climate change are also dangerous to human health.

  • This version of GLIMPSE quantifies human health impacts of air pollutants using the cost per ton emitted. Emission sources are grouped into broad categories and CMAQ and BenMap simulations are used to calculate the health impacts for each source sector and pollutant. More information is available in Fann et al. (2009).
