Air Quality and Climate Change

Climate change alters meteorological variables that influence the development, chemical transformation, transport, dispersion and deposition of air pollutants. Two pollutants particularly influenced by climate change are ground level ozone and particulate matter. Climate change will also affect air quality by increasing the frequency and severity of bushfires and dust storms, and modifying aeroallergens.
