Air Quality Monitoring
About Florida's Air Quality System (FLAQS)
Welcome to Florida's Air Quality System (FLAQS) website. This site's purpose is to provide up-to-date pollution data to the public. Nineteen different state, local and private air programs provide ambient air data to this system. They operate the state's ambient air monitoring network, routinely recording data 24 hours per day.
Ambient air is the air we breathe outside, near ground level. As ambient air quality changes, people respond in different ways. Low concentrations may not affect a person, but at high concentrations, ozone, particle pollution, and other pollutants may cause damage to human health. This site provides air quality information throughout the day to allow you to make better informed decisions for daily activities.
The following mapping and reporting applications available
below show carbon monoxide (CO),
nitrogen dioxide (NO2),
ozone (O3), continuously monitored
particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5) and particulate matter 10 (PM10), and
sulfur dioxide (SO2) levels recorded throughout the state's ambient air monitoring network.
It is important to note that the air quality data less than three months old viewed on this website generally have not been verified and checked for quality assurance in accordance with federal requirements.

DARM Help Desk if you experience any problems at 850-717-9012.
