Florida's Air Quality

Florida's Air Quality System

Florida's Air Quality System (FLAQS) webpage provides 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. This site provides air quality information throughout the day to allow you to make better informed decisions for daily activities.

The mapping and reporting applications available below show carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3), continuously monitored particle pollution 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.

Please contact the Division of Air Resource Management’s Help Desk at 850-717-9012 if you experience any problems.

Air Quality Advisories

Spatial Air Quality System

Use the Florida Spatial Air Quality System (SAQS) to view a visual representation of customized ambient air data and the Air Quality Index (AQI) on a state of Florida map. The AQI is based on continuously monitored CO, NO2, O3, PM2.5, PM10, and SO2 data.

This interactive map displays the current 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 CO, NO2, O3, PM2.5, PM10 and SO2. 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.  

Multiple Site Data

View Daily, Monthly, Highest Readings, and Attainment Status reports of CO, NO2, O3, PM2.5, PM10, and SO2 pollution levels for more than one site at a time.

Single Site Data with County Maps

Air quality data are provided for individual counties. Click the monitoring site link on each county page for current and historic data on Daily, Monthly, Highest Readings and Attainment Status reports of CO, NO2, O3, PM2.5, PM10, and SO2 pollution levels.

Air Quality Index, Forecast and History

Today's AQI is available through the Spatial Air Quality System for all sites in Florida with ozone or continuous fine particle monitors. The data displayed for the current day use the previous 24 hours for the PM2.5 calculations and the previous 31 hours for the 8-hour average ozone calculations. At midnight, the values for the day are left as calendar-day block averages.
This site provides up-to-the-hour information as well as historic information for the two pollutants that most commonly drive the AQI in Florida. The default settings display each of the ozone and PM2.5 monitor's AQI color code. To display either the AQI values or the concentration values, use radio buttons under the Layers tab on the left of the display of the map of Florida. The legend for the AQI is available on the Controls tab, also on the left of the display of the map of Florida.

EnviroFlash

Air quality affects how you live and breathe. Like the weather, it can change from day to day, or even hour to hour. Up-to-date information allows you to make decisions based on air quality forecasts. EnviroFlash comes to you through a partnership between the U.S.  Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and your state or local air quality agency - notifying you about air quality so you don't have to go searching for it. Through EnviroFlash, air quality information is sent straight to your inbox!

Ozone Tracking Sheets

The 1-hour and 8-hour tracking sheet reports are updated once daily at 7:30 a.m. Eastern Time.
