Surface Map

Louisiana Air Quality

The map below depicts air quality across Louisiana. It represents a measure of airborne particulate matter (PM). Particulate matter describes solid particles suspended in air including dust, smoke, and other organic and inorganic particles. PurpleAir sensors use laser particle counters to count the number of particles by particle sizes 0.3, 0.5, 1, 2.5, 5, and 10 μm, and uses the count data to calculate mass concentrations of PM1.0, PM2.5, and PM10. This map does not include Ozone which is also dangerous in high quantities. Use your mouse wheel or the "+/-" icons to zoom in or out. Click on a station below to see detailed information/data.
