The National Park Service Air Resources Division has available In-park Air Emission Inventory Reports for over 20 park units. These reports address several air emission sources commonly found in parks, such as visitor vehicles, wildland fires, woodstoves, watercraft, and other sources. The reports, listed in the table below, provide recommendations on how these emissions might be mitigated as well. Finally, the reports provide an overview of compliance with applicable state and local air quality regulations. Reports noted by (*) are not yet available online but can be provided by contacting John Bunyak at (303) 969-2818.
