Air Quality Links

Listed below are links to web pages that are resources for students examining air quality topics, especially on ozone (O3), volatile organic hydrocarbons (VOCs),  VOCs such as isoprene, and on urban heat islands.  One of the best resources for students and teachers alike are the pages on air quality and climate under the Horizons Workshop umbrella of Dr. Linda George at Portland State University:  http://www.horizons.pdx.edu/~horizons/index1.html.  Horizons workshops introduce teachers and students to climate and atmospheric processes and issues.  Faculty, teacher, and student work is housed under the "Research" and the "Education" sidebar links.
