U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Air Pollution Data: AIRDataEntry ID: EPA_AirData_pollution
Abstract: The AIRData website provides access to air pollution data for the
United States. It provides information such as the highest ozone
level measured by state and the location of air pollution
monitoring sites. AIRData creates custom reports using specified
criteria, displays standard maps of the U.S., and provides
AIRData presents annual summaries of air pollution data from three EPA
... databases: - AIRS (Aerometric Information Retrieval System) database
provides air monitoring data - ambient concentrations of criteria air
pollutants at monitoring sites, primarily in cities and towns. - NET
(National Emission Trends) database provides estimates of annual
emissions of criteria air pollutants from point, area, and mobile
sources. Revised every three years. - NTI (National Toxics
Inventory) database provides estimates of annual emmissions of
hazardous air pollutants from point, area, and mobile sources.
Revised every three years.
Air pollutant monitoring information is refreshed monthly.
Quality Caution: do not infer a qualitative ranking order of geographic areas
based on AIRData reports. Air pollution levels measured in the
vicinity of a particular monitoring site may not be representative
of the prevailing air quality of a county or urban area.
Pollutants emitted from a particular source may have little impact
on the immediate geographic area, and the amount of pollutants
emitted does not indicate whether the source is complying with

example, the "Show List of Counties" button on selection criteria
