Ambient Monitoring Program - DeAnna Oser, Program Manager

The Ambient Monitoring Program (AMP) measures levels of air pollutants throughout the State. The data are used to determine compliance with air standards established for five compounds and to evaluate the need for any special controls for various other pollutants. Recent measurements are available by selecting the day in the table below. Older data may be obtained by querying the AMP database. Further, all these data are used to calculate the Air Quality Index (AQI) - a simple measure of a region's air quality.
