China Air Quality & The Beijing Olympics

It seems China’s air quality might not be perfect for the Olympic athletes. The good news is China is willing to work toward correcting this issue.

The team has researched and modeled the local and regional contributors to Beijing’s air quality, leading to a greater understanding of regional air quality management and development of new emission control strategies. The modeling study has been widely cited by Chinese policy makers, including the Beijing mayor, in requesting the government to implement unprecedented regional control programs to ensure that the air quality goals for 2008 will be met in Beijing.
