EPA Scientists Collaborate with States to Protect Long Island Sound Air Quality

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) scientists are collaborating in a multi-agency field study from June to September 2018 to better understand the complex interaction of emissions, chemistry, and meteorological factors contributing to high ozone levels along the Long Island Sound shorelines. The Long Island Sound Tropospheric Ozone Study (LISTOS) includes researchers from state and federal agencies and academia with expertise in collecting aircraft-, satellite- and ground-based air quality measurements.

The study will provide valuable data and resources to state air quality managers as they develop strategies to control ozone pollution, and reduce and eliminate NAAQS non-attainment areas.
