Texas Air Quality Research Program
The University of Texas at Austin administers the Texas Air Quality Research Program (AQRP) that supports scientific research related to Texas air quality, in the areas of emissions inventory development, atmospheric chemistry, meteorology and air quality modeling. Research topics are identified and prioritized by an Independent Technical Advisory Committee (ITAC). Projects to be funded by the AQRP are selected from the list of ITAC recommended projects by the TCEQ and an Advisory Council. AQRP has projects and reports that have helped advance the leading edge of the science for air quality regulation and implementation in Texas.
