The State of California has been supporting regional climate change research for more than a decade. These studies have complemented research at the national level and have been designed to inform climate policy deliberations and actions in California. This Research Catalog provides basic information about past and ongoing climate change related studies that state agencies have conducted or commissioned since the early 2000s. The purpose of this catalog is to document California’s research efforts and to facilitate the exchange of information.

  1. Air Quality Impacts of Low Vapor Pressure-Volatile Organic Compounds
    Lead Agency: selectAg
    Principal Investigator(s): David Cocker (UCR)
    Year finished: 2013
    Published/Product: http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/single-project.php?row_id=65197
    Notes
    The objective of this project is to investigate the emissions of low vapor pressure volatile organic compounds from consumer products and their impacts on air quality. It is designed to evaluate the evaporation flux, and therefore atmospheric availability, of specific LVP-VOCs both as pure compounds and in consumer products sold in California. The project will also evaluate the ozone and secondary particle formation of these compounds once they enter the atmosphere using a state-of-the-science environmental chamber.


  2. Co-Exposure to PM and O-3: Pulmonary C Fiber Platelet Activation in Decreased HRV
    Lead Agency: selectAg
    Principal Investigator(s): Fern Tablin (UCD)
    Year finished: 2013
    Published/Product: http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/single-project.php?row_id=65194
    Notes
    The objective of this study is to examine a hypothesized mechanistic pathway for the cardiovascular effects of ozone and PM2.5, and to examine whether the effects of co exposure to these pollutants are additive or synergistic in laboratory animals.


  3. Humboldt Bay Sea Level Rise Mapping and Vulnerability Assessment
    Lead Agency: selectAg
    Year finished: 2013, Budget: $250,000
    Published/Product: http://scc.ca.gov/webmaster/ftp/pdf/humboldt-bay-shoreline.pdf

  4. Life Cycle Assessment and Co-Benefits of Cool Pavements
    Lead Agency: selectAg
    Principal Investigator(s): Ronnen Levinson (LBNL)
    Year finished: 2013, Budget: $450,000
    Published/Product: http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/single-project.php?row_id=65149
    Notes
    The objective of this project is to build upon existing LCA work to evaluate traditional and cool pavements across a variety of environment outcomes, including greenhouse gas emissions, and local climate and air quality impacts due to changing albedo.


  5. Quantifying the Comprehensive Greenhouse Gas Co-Benefits of Green Buildings
    Lead Agency: selectAg
    Principal Investigator(s): Edward Arens (UCB)
    Year finished: 2012, Budget: $180,000
    Published/Product: http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/single-project.php?row_id=65100
    Notes
    The objective of this research is to develop a database of certified commercial green buildings in California to measure the comprehensive GHG reductions and co-benefits due to water savings, waste reduction, and minimized transportation impacts.
