Environmental Protection Agency ⌨: NOAA's Mission: Science, Service and Stewardship -- 1. To understand and predict changes in climate, weather, oceans and coasts; 2. To share that knowledge and information with others; and 3. To conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources.: EPA researches 3 primary areas: water, air, and waste & pollution, and how these areas affect human health, the ecosystem and the climate. EPA develops and enforces regulations, gives grants, studies environmental issues, sponsors partnerships, and teaches people about the environment.
Environmental Topics: Air ♦ Bed Bugs ♦ Chemicals & Toxics ♦ Climate Change ♦ Environmental Information by Location ♦ Greener Living ♦ Health ♦ Land, Waste & Cleanup ♦ Lead ♦ Mold ♦ Pesticides ♦ Radon ♦ Water ♦ A to Z Index
Air Emissions Inventories: Detailed estimate of air emissions that include criteria pollutants and hazardous air pollutants.
AirNow: Daily Air Quality Index conditions for over 400 cities.
