Air Quality Studies Continue in the Nashville-Smyrna Area

 

 

The NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory has deployed
a mobile weather station/wind profiler to collect data at the
National Weather Service Office at Old Hickory until July 15th.
These data, along with data collected from a NOAA WP-3D
research aircraft temporarily based in Smyrna, TN, will be
used in a study of Southeast U.S. air quality. The near real
time observations are online at
