Due to the complex terrain in our area and its impact on local wind patterns, ozone levels can vary significantly over short distances. Therefore, when viewing these graphs it is important to remember that these ozone readings are only representative of the immediate area near the monitor locations.
Please check the “Latest data” time at the top of the graphs to make sure you are seeing the most current ozone readings, and if the “Latest data” time is not current, then click on your browser’s ‘refresh’ button to get the most recent readings.
The Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District calibrates the Litton Building monitor every Friday morning, causing very high ozone readings to appear in our plots. These readings are not real and should be disregarded.
