The NPS participates in research activities and special regional air pollution studies aimed at understanding the formation and long-range transport of ozone and other gaseous pollutants. Over the past several years, NPS has operated enhanced monitoring sites in three national parks, Shenandoah, Great Smoky Mountains, and Mammoth Cave, as part of regional ozone studies. Other special studies have included the use of passive ozone samplers and portable ozone analyzers.
