Air Quality Data
The EPA’s air data web site gives you access to air pollution data for the entire United States. Find out the highest ozone level measured in your state last year; where air pollution monitoring sites are located; whether there are sources of air pollution in your town. EPA produces reports and maps of air pollution data based on criteria that you specify. http://www.epa.gov/air/data/index.html
A.S.L. & Associates over the past 26 years has developed extensive experience and resources for the purpose of assessing the potential impacts of air pollution on the environment. http://www.asl-associates.com/
A cross-agency U.S. Government web site that provides information and data on air quality forecasts, air quality conditions, and historical data. Generate an air quality report for your county or state. http://www.airnow.gov/
Research Studies and Educational Material
The Montréal Process is the Working Group on Criteria and Indicators for the Conservation and Sustainable Management of Temperate and Boreal Forests. It was formed in Geneva, Switzerland, in June 1994 to develop and implement internationally agreed criteria and indicators for the conservation and sustainable management of temperate and boreal forests. http://www.mpci.org
The National Park Service Air Resources Division provides links to many resources on ozone air quality and the impacts of ozone on ecological systems. http://www2.nature.nps.gov/
IUFRO is a non-profit, non-governmental international network of forest scientists that promotes global cooperation in forest-related research and enhances the understanding of the ecological, economic and social aspects of forests and trees. http://www.iufro.org/iufro/.
The Aspen FACE (Free-Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment) Experiment is a multidisciplinary study to assess the effects of increasing tropospheric ozone and carbon dioxide levels on the structure and function of northern forest ecosystems. http://aspenface.mtu.edu/.
The USDA Forest Service Forest Health Monitoring Program produces a National Technical Report every year that presents results from forest health data analyses including air pollution (sulfates, nitrates, and ozone) and the relationship of air pollution data to other forest health indicators. http://www.treesearch.fs.fed.us/
The PLANTS Database provides standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories. http://plants.usda.gov/
