Theodore Roosevelt National Park: Air Quality 10-day Charts

Ozone, Particulate Matter (PM2.5), and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Data
Collected at the Visitor Center Monitoring Site

Ozone: 1-hour and 8-hour average concentrations

The chart below plots both the 1-hour and running 8-hour average ozone concentration, but only the 8-hour average should be used to compare with the standard. The standard is exceeded when the 8-hour concentrations reach or go above 75 parts per billion, as denoted by the line with the label NAT'L AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARD. The background of the chart is color coded and relates to the EPA National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone, which is designed to protect human health.

Particulate Matter Less Than 2.5 Micrometers in Diameter (PM2.5): 1-hour and 24-hour average concentrations

The chart below plots both the 1-hour and running 24-hour average PM2.5 concentration, but only the 24-hour average should be used to compare with the standard. The standard is exceeded when the 24-hour concentrations go above 35 micrograms per cubic meter, as denoted by the line with the label NAT'L AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARD. The background of the chart is color coded and relates to the EPA National Ambient Air Quality Standard for particulate matter, which is designed to protect human health.
