Kaktovik Ambient Air Monitoring Annual Data Summary Reports, 2022-2023

The Kaktovik Ambient Air Monitoring Project (KAAMP) equipment was installed in October 2021. Collection of valid meteorological, gaseous, and particulate matter (PM) data commenced on October 15, 2021.

Annual reports present the meteorological and pollutant data collected at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Kaktovik Ambient Air Monitoring Project (KAAMP) station. The primary objective of this effort is to collect continuous year-round meteorological and air pollutant data with near adherence to pertinent PSD monitoring requirements in the vicinity of the village of Kaktovik on Barter Island, Alaska.

The data are collected and will be used to characterize air quality in the Coastal Plain Region of the Arctic National Refuge to support BLM decision-making related to potential oil, gas and other future land use authorizations in this area. The stated duration of the monitoring program is three years (and, potentially, optional fourth and fifth years).
