Surface In-Situ Networks
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources and Local Agencies in St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield operate approximately 190 ambient air quality monitoring instruments in the state. The intent of this network is to determine the nature of the air quality in the state, and determine the location and severity of any problems. Monitors evaluate pollutant levels related to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards, which are health and welfare based standards developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Trends from these monitoring sites indicate changes in air quality over time, and provide information on air quality relationships in various parts of the state. In addition, monitoring for various air toxins is conducted, as well as monitoring to understand the chemical makeup of some air pollutants, to help evaluate pollutant sources and controls.
