Guiding Principles for Air Quality Assessment Components of Environmental Impact Assessments (2017)
As a biophysical effect, impacts on air quality (AQ) are a central focus of many EIAs where significant air contaminants may be emitted from the proposed development; resultant studies are termed “air quality impact assessments,” or AQIAs. The scope of this document covers the prediction of resultant air quality levels—it does not include human health or ecological impact assessments, which themselves take input from the results of the AQIA.
