NRCS Air Quality and Atmospheric Change
NRCS helps private landowners conserve our natural resources, and air resources are among those. Our Air Quality resource concerns can be broadly classified into five air quality and atmospheric change issues:
- Particulate matter
- Ozone precursors
- Greenhouse gases and carbon sequestration
- Airborne reactive nitrogen
For each of these major issues the latest science and the most relevant technical tools are being applied so that NRCS personnel, cooperators and landowners can make the best decisions regarding air resources.
