This study firstly applies an integrated statistical scheme to estimate the contributions of TAP and local sources to air pollutants in a city, and then investigate the influences of tropical cyclones (TC) on TAP. This dissertation studies trans-boundary air pollution under China's regionally decentralized environmental management and its influences on non-polluting industries. It consists of three chapters. In the first chapter, I study whether subnational governments in China have engaged in trans-boundary air pollution. I identify which cities are "downwind" in each of China's provinces and uses.

Transboundary flows of pollutants occur between the United States and our closest neighbors, Mexico and Canada, as well as between North America, other continents, and sources in the global commons such as international shipping and aviation.
