The map below shows the current highest sulfur dioxide 1-hour levels measured in parts per billion (ppb) for each of the metropolitan or other areas across Virginia where sulfur dioxide is measured by the Virginia DEQ. More detailed maps showing the current 1-hour sulfur dioxide levels measured at each site in a particular area are available by clicking on the boxes on the map. These levels are based on data measured at the Virginia DEQ's continuous air monitoring stations and may include data from local governments and private monitoring networks.
The latest imagery available is for Wednesday April 26, 2017 00-01:00 EDT.
Sulfur Dioxide levels have been mapped to colors based on the national one-hour standard levels.
