Louisiana Ambient Air Monitoring Network
STATUS
Operational
Surface In-Situ Networks
Ambient air monitoring operations are the responsibility of the DEQ Air Quality Assessment Division, Air Analysis Section. The Air Analysis Section maintains a statewide monitoring network, made up of stationary ambient air monitoring stations. From these sites, Analysis personnel collect direct measurements of air pollutant concentrations, analyze, and interpret the data. The data collected is used to track trends in air quality and to determine compliance with National Ambient Air Quality Standards. Monitoring sites contain specialized instruments to measure concentrations of the pollutants ozone, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and respirable particulate matter, in accordance with federal air monitoring requirements. The Analysis Section also measures concentrations of volatile organic compounds at selected sites throughout Louisiana.
