Through this project, students will discover what ground level ozone is, what factors contribute to its formation and how breathing ozone affects health. Students will use data and animated maps from the internet to monitor the presence of ground level...

View Resource NASA: Aura Atmospheric Chemistry

Aura is the EOS chemistry mission which aims to answer three important questions: is the ozone layer recovering, is air quality getting worse, and is the Earth's climate changing? Aura will continue the long term series of atmospheric chemistry measurements made by earlier missions. The Aura spacecraft operates in a 705 km sun-synchronous polar orbit, with an ascending equator crossing at 1:45...

View Resource Green Book Nonattainment Areas for Criteria Pollutants

Areas of the country where air pollution levels persistently exceed the national ambient air quality standards may be designated "nonattainment." This site offers information and maps regarding regions of the country which have been designated as nonattainment areas for each of the pollutants: Ozone, Carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Sulfur Dioxide, Particulate Matter, Lead and all Criteria...
