Abstract: "Air Quality Monitoring" is a long-term dataset that continually
measures ambient air quality in forested areas of West Virginia, based
on parameters measured by the National Dry Deposition Network (NDDN).
Data collected in USDA Forest Service Timber and Watershed Research
Lab, Parsons, WV; Monongahela National Forest, Bearden Knob - Canaan
Heights, WV.

Collection Methodology: National Dry Deposition Network (NDDN) data
collected: site, date, time, precipitation (inches), wind direction (0
to 360 deg), wind speed (meters/second), temperature (deg C), relative
humidity (%), ozone (ppb), solar radiation (Watt/meter
squared). Additional data collected included sulfur dioxide (ppb),
nitrogen oxide (ppb), and nitrous oxides (ppb).
