The Florida Spatial Air Quality System (SAQS) displays the current Air Quality Index (AQI) for all ambient air quality monitors in the state. The AQI is an index for reporting daily air quality, and it is calculated based on monitored concentrations of ground-level ozone, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.
The highest AQI for the pollutants measured at each site over the past 24 hours is displayed. An AQI of 100 or less is indicative of pollutant concentrations that are considered satisfactory.
Clicking on a monitor location opens a pop-up window containing information on which pollutants are monitored at each location, the highest monitored concentration from the past 24 hours for each, and which pollutant currently has the highest AQI. A legend describing the AQI levels can be found using the arrows in the top-left corner of the window.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
