Description:Both the Clean Air Act and the National Park Service (NPS) Organic Act protect air resources in national parks. Understanding changes in air quality can aid in interpreting changes in other monitored vital signs. The Northern Colorado Plateau Network (NCPN) has identified several components of air quality as high-priority vital signs for monitoring. Over the past three decades, the NPS has developed several internal and cooperative programs for monitoring various measures of air quality. These programs (see table) are currently monitoring air quality at six NCPN parks (see box). The NCPN will acquire and analyze data from existing stations and report on data specific to park units..
