About PM2.5 Emissions

PM2.5 is a term used to refer to particulate matter in the atmosphere of 2.5 micrometers (µm) or smaller in size. Scientific studies have suggested that the volume of PM2.5 particles are a key measure affecting human health and the health of the environment. To monitor PM2.5 emissions since 1997, the U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a monitoring network throughout the U.S. territories maintained by federal, state and local agencies. The network is composed of about 1500 sites and serves multiple information needs.
