    4   <TEXT>  Fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is defined as particles with a diameter smaller than 2.5 micrometers (um, or microns). PM2.5 can get deep inside the lungs and cause a variety of symptoms, such as painful breathing, chest tightness, headache, and coughing. PM2.5 can exacerbate respiratory infections, trigger asthma attacks and symptoms, and cause temporary reductions in lung capacity. Respiratory symptoms are more likely to occur when PM2.5 levels exceed the EPA's standard, but are possible when PM2.5 levels are below the standard, especially in sensitive populations. PM2.5 has been found in some studies to be associated with an increased risk of chronic lung disease^1^ </TEXT>

    6   <TEXT> In addition to these adverse outcomes, PM2.5 can influence the environment in ways that will eventually affect human health. Fine particles cause haze which reduces visibility. The long-term effects of PM2.5, which settles in the soil, natural water sources, forests, and agricultural areas, are still to be determined. </TEXT>

    8   <TEXT> Whether or not climate change has an effect on PM2.5 concentration has yet to be determined. As temperatures increase, PM2.5 concentration has been shown to increase in the United States, however this is not the general consensus of the scientific community. The EPA recommends an annual PM2.5 standard of less than 12 micrograms per cubic meter. However, as temperatures increase, PM2.5 concentration has been shown to increase in the United States, but this is not the general consensus of the scientific community. Researchers seem to agree that as precipitation increases, PM2.5 levels will decrease since it "clears" the air^2^. If precipitation events are seen to increase with climate change, it is reasonable to conclude that PM2.5 levels may decrease. PM2.5 concentrations could also be affected by air stagnation events (i.e., inversions). If air stagnation events increase in frequency with climate change, PM2.5 levels are likely to rise because these events trap the pollution at the Earth's surface^2^. More research is needed to accurately quantify to what extent PM2.5 levels will be affected by a changing climate. </TEXT>
