associated with each 0.01 ppm O3 concentration or exposure 
interval for air quality simulating just meeting the current and 
several alternative standards based on 2002 and 2004 air quality data. 
The total O3-related risk for non-accidental mortality and 
specific lung function responses are also presented in the tables in 
this memo and are the same as reported in the July 2007 TSD.
