The quest to learn more about air quality in national parks

The National Park Service conducts and supports air quality research in national parks. In contrast to long-term monitoring, which provides information on the status and trends of air pollutants, research focuses on answering specific questions. Often we ask:

  • What are the sources of air pollutants in national parks?

  • How do air pollutants affect natural resources?
