Air Quality System (AQS) Data Mart
The AQS Data Mart is the best way for the public, researchers, and governmental agencies to access our air quality and meteorological data as well as data from other agencies. Users must request, from the EPA, login information using their full name and email to gain access to the database. Data is typically valid and certified by the middle of the current year for the year prior. For example, our 2012 data will be certified by March 31, 2013. Other agencies will have 2012 data certified by June 30, 2013.
