This report summarizes and interprets ambient air monitoring data collected during the summer of 2000 as part of the National Nonmethane Organic Compound and Speciated Nonmethane Organic Compound Monitoring Program, which is also called the NMOC/SNMOC Monitoring Program. Designed to characterize levels of air pollution in regions with groundlevel ozone problems, the NMOC/SNMOC Monitoring Program measures air concentrations of several groups of pollutants that participate in the photochemical reactions that form 'smog.' The 2000 NMOC/SNMOC Monitoring Program spanned four months (June to September), during which ambient air samples were collected daily between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., local time, at three monitoring locations. These samples were analyzed for NMOC and SNMOC. Overall, over 5000 ambient air concentrations were measured during the 2000 program. This report uses various graphical, numerical, and statistical analyses to identify and illustrate meaningful trends and patterns in this large volume of ambient air monitoring data.
