Description

The NARSTO_EPA_HOUSTON_TEXAQS2000_CAMS_DATA data set contains 5-minute air quality measurements collected in Texas during August and September 2000 at 85 continuous ambient monitoring stations (CAMS) during the Texas Air Quality Study 2000 (TEXAQS2000). Measurements include carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), total reactive nitrogen species (NOy), ozone, particulate matter (PM2.5 mass), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), wind speed, wind direction, maximum wind gust, air temperature, dewpoint temperature, humidity, precipitation, surface pressure, radiation, and visibility. CAMS are operated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, local city or country governments, or private monitoring networks.Important monitoring site information: The site information data table in each of the 85 data files may not contain the latest TCEQ site information. A companion file site information spreadsheet (.csv) that lists data for all 85 sites is the latest TCEQ site information. The site information data tables in the 85 data files will not be updated. The 85 site spreadsheet companion document is the official source of site data, and this data is listed in the TEXAQS2000 CAMS guide document.NARSTO (formerly North American Research Strategy for Tropospheric Ozone) is a public/private partnership, whose membership spans government, the utilities, industry, and academe throughout Mexico, the United States, and Canada. The primary mission is to coordinate and enhance policy-relevant scientific research and assessment of tropospheric pollution behavior; activities provide input for science-based decision-making and determination of workable, efficient, and effective strategies for local and regional air-pollution management. Data products from local, regional, and international monitoring and research programs are available.
