NARSTO is dedicated to improving management of air quality in North America. Additionally, NARSTO is working to improve collaboration between the air-quality and health-sciences research communities, to advance understanding of the scientific issues involved in effecting a multi-pollutant/multi-media approach to air quality management, and to increase understanding of the linkages between air quality and climate change. NARSTO is represented by private and public organizations in Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
NARSTO was terminated as of December 31, 2010. While data remain available via the original NARSTO Data Archive, the permanent data archive is maintained by the NASA Langley Research Center Atmospheric Science Data Center at https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/project/narsto/narsto_table
Data are available from the NASA Langley Atmospheric Science Data Center as ASCII data files in the NARSTO Data Exchange Standard (DES) format. This format is described on the NARSTO Quality Systems Science Center web site: https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/project/narsto/narsto_table
