Paper Title:
Health Effect Valuation of Ground-Level Ozone Control in Beijing and its Surrounding Areas, China
  Abstract

Ground-level ozone pollution has attracted attention from academia and public in China recent years. This paper examines the effect and benefit of controlling ground-level ozone pollution in Beijing and its surrounding areas based on health effect valuation and cost-benefit analysis. It compares pollution damage effects under current ozone concentration and six assuming control targets then estimates the health benefit of air quality improvement by cost-benefit analysis. The result shows that, the benefit of ground-level ozone control is considerably huge for the high population density and pollution concentration area which implies the ground-level ozone pollution control policy implementation is necessary and urgent.
