This is all particulate matter that is smaller than 10 micrometers in size.
Particulates are the most harmful form of air pollution due to their ability to penetrate deep into the lungs and blood stream.
Particulate pollution is often caused by burning of fossil fuels or natural sources like dust storms, forest fires, or sea spray

167
PM2.5

PM2.5 levels are currently Moderate.

This is all particulate matter that is smaller than 2.5 micrometers in size.
Particulates are the most harmful form of air pollution due to their ability to penetrate deep into the lungs and blood stream.
Particulate pollution is often caused by burning of fossil fuels or natural sources like dust storms, forest fires, or sea spray

NO2

NO2 levels are currently Good.

Nitrogen oxides, particularly nitrogen dioxide (NO2), are expelled from high temperature combustion. NO2 is a reddish-brown toxic gas has a characteristic sharp, biting odor, and can be seen as a brown-ish plume downwind of cities

94
O3

O3 levels are currently Good.

Ground level ozone is formed in chemical reactions by NOx and VOCs in the presence of sunlight. High concentrations of O3 can be a constituent of smog.

45
CO

CO levels are currently Good.

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, toxic gas. It is a product of combustion of fuel such as natural gas, coal or wood. Vehicular exhaust contributes to the majority of carbon monoxide let into our atmosphere. It creates a smog type formation in the air that has been linked to many lung diseases and disruptions to the natural environment and animals.

1000
SO2

SO2 levels are currently Good.

Sulfur oxides, particulary Sulfure Dioxide (SO2) is produced by in various industrial processes, especially when involving fuel combustion, and also by volcanoes. Coal and petroleum often contain sulfur compounds, and their combustion generates sulfur dioxide. Further oxidation of SO2 can produce acid rain.
