In this activity, you will interpret graphs to determine emissions from various sources and determine the source type emitting the most PM10 and PM2.5 in your state.

  1. Select your state from the map to view the state's air pollution data (NOTE: it may take a moment to load the first time you click).
  2. Click through the site and look up the amount of various pollutants in your state to complete the table and answer the questions on the Student Worksheet (move your mouse over the colored column to view the corresponding percentage) .
