"Calming" works fine but I would put "the" before it.
I'd like to ask you to help me with one of the sentences from my paper:
"Such vaccines against influenza were not used due to rapid termination of the epidemics and calming of the population"
I have some doubts about the word "calming". Do you find the sentence fine? I was also thinking about "quieting" or "soothing" instead. What do you think?
What about "the" before "rapid termination"?
