This site provides near real time air quality measurement data from the New York State DEC Air Monitoring network.

JavaScript must be enabled for this application to work in regular mode.

The NYSDEC Air Quality monitoring website allows a real-time view into the ambient air quality database of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. In general, data is polled at the top of each hour from each station. It is immediately displayed as it is collected.

There are a few paths to select the data for specific monitoring stations.

Either of these methods will lead you to the Monitoring Station page - This page shows the most recently collected monitoring data, a photo of the monitoring station and some information about the station. The Monitoring Station page also shows an AQI graphic and "Instant Graphs" of the past 24 hours. These are accessed by hovering over the table with the mouse cursor.

A report with up to 180 days of data from each station can be generated by pressing the link labeled "Click Here to Produce Reports" on any of the monitoring station pages.

The information used is the first available data from our air quality monitoring network.
The values have not been verified for accuracy or been through the appropriate quality assurance and control validation procedures.

For validated data contact the Bureau of Air Quality Surveillance at (518) 402-8508

NOTE: SO2 and NO2 data reports prior to 1/1/11 are in units of parts per million
