Nitrogen Dioxide Trends for US Cities

 

Browse the Top 20 US Cities.  There are ready-made plots that you can download.  The correspondence is generally great between variations and trends in OMI NO2 levels and EPA Air Quality System (AQS) "nose-level" NO2 data.  Check out our recent paper (Lamsal et al., 2015).
 


Make your own plots!  Download either our ASCII file or our Excel file that contain monthly-averaged OMI NO2 data for a number of US metro areas from 2005 to 2016.  The file can be easily imported into Microsoft Excel, for instance.

 

Select from the cities below to find data and plots specific to each location. To sort, simply click on one of the column headings.
