Air Quality Database for Arctic Alaska - 2020 (v1.2)

The Air Quality Database (AQD) was created to summarize available information relevant to address air quality management decision making on the North Slope of Alaska. The database was originally created in 2015 as part of the BLM North Slope Rapid Ecoregional Assessment. BLM together with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation completed a review and update of the database for 2016. The AQD was updated in 2020 and is provided for download below.

The AQD has three different ACCESS tables that contain data, literature and models that are relevant to the assessment of North Slope air quality. Where appropriate, links to data, literature and additional information are provided in the database. ACCESS forms and reports are also provided as part of AQD for easier viewing and printing of AQD information. For a complete description of the AQD please refer to the Readme file available for download from the link below.

It is anticipated that the AQD will continue to be updated periodically to include additional data.
