This is the supporting information for an article entitled "Life cycle air quality impacts of conventional and alternative light-duty transportation in the United States", published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States (dx.doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1406853111). The study assesses the life cycle air quality impacts on human health of 10 alternatives to conventional gasoline vehicles, including vehicles powered by diesel, natural gas, ethanol, and electricity. This supporting information is comprised of 1) A Microsoft Excel file containing emissions amounts disaggregated by life cycle stage for each scenario; 2) maps of ground-level concentrations of 13 different air pollutants attributable to each scenario; and 3) videos showing temporal variation in ground-level fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and ozone (O3) concentrations attributable to each scenario. The data here were generated using state-of-the-science air pollutant emission and transport models.
